5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 starsExcellent for beginners and advanced alike
Posted by Jody Palm on 1/1/1999
This is a thoroughly beautiful book with explanations of the most typical pottery techniques. The descriptions of the techniques are in some cases not as detailed as one might want, but if you know what you're doing, they are good enough. The photos in the book are particularly inspiring and beautiful. There are some lovely examples shown of every technique discussed. I highly recommend this to anyone new to pottery as a source of inspiration and information.

Posted by Judy Keicher on 10/24/2001
I ordered this book last year, to use in my high school ceramics classes, and it is already dog-eared! My kids use this book all the time to get ideas for their projects or just to start their creative juices flowing. My advanced students find it an invaluable source for unusual techniques and methods of decorating ceramic ware. I even use this book in order to get ideas for my curriculum for the year.

This is a great reference book with lots of ideas and lots of illustrations. Great for someone who wants to explore out of just throwing or hand building. Great step by step ideas with great color illustrations.

I've been throwing for about 3 years and this book was given to me as a gift. It briefly touches on many subject and has a lot of good pictures.

I would recommend this to anyone with interest in pottery, both wheel throwing and hand building.
