The brand-new edition of this very popular how-to book for potters is bigger and better than ever. It has gone up in page count from the first edition to accommodate additional projects with instructions for making them, and also features an expanded gallery of handsome color photos showing examples of finished pieces. Handbuilt Pottery Techniques Revealed focuses on projects that produce good-looking and useful finished objects but don't require use of a potter's wheel. Author and expert potter Jacqui Atkin instructs in coil, slab, mold, and pinch techniques to produce pots, bowls, vases, tiles, and other decorative pieces. She also lists basic tools the potter will need, instructs on mixing and preparing clay, and advises on use of coloring agents. Step-by-step color photos with detailed captions guide handcrafters through each project from start to finish. Many photos are of the cutaway type to show correct hand positions for controlling the clay, both inside and outside the form. Here's the book that takes the mystery out of hand-building in clay, demonstrating each step in the pottery-making process. Hundreds of color photos.
