"The New Pottery Book" is a completely new and revised edition of the "Complete Potters Companion". Pottery is a dynamic art form, constantly evolving as it responds to newly developed techniques and the changing aspirations of potters and students. The title, as before, has been designed to help beginners and serious students alike. It guides the reader through the latest hand building and glazing techniques; new tested glaze recipes; kiln designs and firing programmes; as well as describing the traditional methods of working with clay. Each technique is supported by detailed instructions and specially taken step-by-step photographs. Galleries of work by respected artists from around the world form an inspirational feature of this volume. Pots by Paul Soldner, Claudi Casanovas, Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Claude Casanovas, Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Claude Champy, Shoji Hamada and Takeshi Yasuda, to name but a few, are included and show the reader the spectacular results that can be achieved with clay.
