Pottery: Form and Expression
[Published for] American Craftsmen's Council [by] Reinhold, 1962 - Pottery - 157 pages
This pottery instruction book uses an entirely unique approach. It shows how any craftsperson can develop both as an alert and creative human being and as a competent technician in his or her field. It provides basic technical information about processes and materials, and contains examples of pottery chosen not only for artistic qualities but also as expressions of ancient and contemporary cultures. Although directed primarily to potters, this book is of interest to students and teachers in any field of arts or crafts. It is not only technically instructive but also highly inspirational for human and creative development. Includes numerous photographs by famed photo journalist Otto Hagel of Wildehain, her students and works they produced at Wildehain's Pond Farm studio and school in Guerneville, Calif.
