This is a comprehensive, invaluable reference to hand building that will be popular with crafters & ceramicists alike. With a wealth of information, elegant design, and time-tested advice, this beautiful beginner's book covers the most popular topic in ceramics. Just as in her celebrated workshops, artist Shay Amber guides would-be potters through all the basics of hand building, from pinching and coiling to draping slabs, adding gorgeous surface embellishments, and firing. Twelve teaching projects - including a pinched tea bowl and coil-built espresso cup set - build a repertoire of skills. Hundreds of step-by-step images demonstrate key steps while extensive galleries of images provide inspiration.
