"Throwing clay on a potter's wheel and the seemingly effortless and wonderful way that clay will swell and climb in the hands of a skilled potter is merely the beginning to this most 'natural' and ancient of crafts."--from Throwing Pots Throwing is a skill that many potters seek to master. It requires patience, time, and lots of practice. In Throwing Pots, Phil Rogers takes the reader through the basic principles of throwing. With the help of step-by-step illustrations, he demonstrates how to make a wide range of pots, from the simple bowl to the more complex forms of teapots and jugs, including lids and spouts. Rogers also discusses the aesthetics of pottery, encouraging readers to assess design and develop a personal style as well as recommending places to see examples of fine quality handthrown pottery.

Key movements, trends and personalities are all covered.

The book looks at how pottery established itself within the wider context of the visual arts. The book examines the range of pottery produced under the heading of 'studio pottery' and discusses the way the work embodies and communicates the values of the makers. It also investigates how studio pottery has been presented to the world through photographs, exhibitions, books and publicity material.

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Book for 2000 The history of ceramics is extraordinarily diverse, ranging from crude clay utensils to highly decorative pieces of immense beauty and craftsmanship. Robin Hildyard draws on the Victoria & Albert Museum's extensive collection to trace the story of European ceramics, in its rich diversity from the end of the Middle Ages to the present day. Highlighting key developments, techniques, discoveries, and styles--from earthenware, stoneware, and tin glaze to the invention of porcelain and the impact of industrialization--the narrative is interspersed with thematic spreads that explore the techniques and astonishing capabilities of this most universal of materials. Events such as the Great Exhibition and its successors sought to resolve the conflict between mass production and good design, illustrated here by a wide range of pieces. Looking at the complicated twentieth-century relationship among designer, manufacturer, and artist, the book also explores the modernism of the Bauhaus style, the opposing influence of Art Deco, and the explosion of new design following the Second World War. Including works made as recently as 1998, and featuring specially commissioned photography supported by related engravings and pattern-books, European Ceramics is not only an authoritative and indispensable reference work for students and collectors but a wide-ranging and richly illustrated volume--over two hundred illustrations, the majority in color--for all decorative art lovers to treasure.

For nearly a century British potters have invigorated traditional ceramic forms by developing or reinventing techniques, materials, and means of display. Things of Beauty Growing explores major typologies of the vessel--such as bowl, vase, and charger--that have defined studio ceramics since the early 20th century. It places British studio pottery within the context of objects from Europe, Japan, and Korea and presents essays by an international team of scholars and experts. The book highlights the objects themselves, including new works by Adam Buick, Halima Cassell, and Nao Matsunago, featured alongside works by William Staite Murray, Lucie Rie, Edmund de Waal, and others, many published here for the first time. Rounding out the beautifully illustrated volume is an interview with renowned collector John Driscoll and approximately fifty illustrated short biographies of significant makers.
