"It is rare to find a book on art that presents complex aesthetic principles in clear readable form. Ceramics, by Philip Rawson, is such a book. I discovered it ten years ago, and today my well-worn copy has scarcely a page on which some statement is not underlined and starred."—Wayne Higby, from the Foreword
An artist introduces the mechanics of wheel-thrown ceramics, taking the reader through nine projects, from a simple bowl to more advanced creations, in a book with full-color gallery sections that aim to provide inspiration.
This studio reference captures all the popular techniques available for embellishing clay, as well as a wealth of practical information and detailed images that lead readers through every phase of the design and decorating process.
Showcases the signature tableware and tiles created by the Sausalito, California, pottery, capturing the history and craft of Heath ceramics, from its development by Edith Heath in the mid-1940s to the present day, in a volume that includes dozens of full-color and black-and-white photographs. 15,000 first printing.
An interesting beginners book on ceramics, Making and Installing Handmade Tiles, by Angelica Pozo, has everything from design and formation to decoration and site installation, perfect for the do-it-yourselfer looking to create a work of art that is not only an expression of ones inner self, but will be useful for generations to come.
