The Craft and Art of Clay: A Complete Potter's Handbook
Widely considered to be the most comprehensive introduction to ceramics available, this book contains numerous step-by-step illustrations of various ceramic techniques to guide the beginner as well as inspirational ceramic pieces from contemporary potters from around the world. For the more experienced ceramist, there is a wealth of technical detail on things like glaze formulas and temperature conversions which make the book an ideal reference. To quote one review: ...I am a studio potter and would not be without it. The fourth edition has been updated to include profiles of key ceramists who have influenced the field, new material on marketing ceramics including using the internet, more on the use of computers, added coverage of paperclays, using gold and alternative glazes.

Required for my college ceramics class. Lots of good information to refer to. Would recommend for the serious ceramics student. Beautiful Jacket allows it to also become a coffee table book. Very Large. Very Heavy. You will not be taking this one back and forth to school. Read full review
