Publisher Comments:

The fourth book in the successful ceramics series covers one of the most popular subjects: figurative design. 

Even experienced ceramists sometimes approach the challenge of self-supporting, standing human and animal forms with caution. But anyone who has rolled out dough or pinched a piecrust can create the 12 projects in this hands-on guide! Acclaimed ceramist Susan Halls breaks down the process of molding figurative shapes into simple, easily mastered geometric constituents like tubes, bowls, and boxes. For the perfect finishing touch, she explores smoke and sawdust firings in addition to the usual ceramic glazes. A gallery of work from other artists further illustrates the artistic possibilities.

She has exhibited widely throughout the United Kingdom, U.S., and Europe.
