Pottery and Ceramics Description

Pinch, coil, turn, wedge, and throw a gorgeous piece of clay pottery. This introduction to one of the oldest decorative arts illustrates all the techniques for construction and design, complete with patterns to trace and a full-color gallery of awe-inspiring creations. Learn to use the full range of equipment for constructing and decorating--and get some money-saving hints on substitutes: an expired credit card, for example, makes a great smoothing tool! There are also tips on kilns; choosing the right wheel; buying clay; and modeling, glazing, and firing. See how to incorporate found objects with plaster casting--a great and easy technique for creating detailed designs when you're not a skilled sculptor. Try making one of eleven projects: a fabulous Four Fish Salad Bowl (the extended rim of the bow has the silhouette of the fishes' fins); a sunny pitcher on a stand decorated with oranges and foliage; a painted plate with rich red roses; a Theater Clock with a star-cloth backdrop; and a Wisteria Platter inspired by a medieval stone carving. And especially for beginners: an incredibly simple-to-do Sunflower Vase that doesn't even require a kiln! Plus 5 more that are fun to do. 96 pages (all in color), 7 1/2 x 10 1/2.
