Publisher Comments:

In A Potter's Workbook, renowned studio potter and teacher Clary Illian presents a textbook for the hand and the mind. Her aim is to provide a way to see, to make, and to think about the forms of wheel-thrown vessels; her information and inspiration explain both the mechanics of throwing and finishing pots made simply on the wheel and the principles of truth and beauty arising from that traditional method.

Each chapter begins with a series of exercises that introduce the principles of good form and good forming for pitchers, bowls, cylinders, lids, handles, and every other conceivable functional shape. Focusing on utilitarian pottery created on the wheel, Illian explores sound, lively, and economically produced pottery forms that combine an invitation to mindful appreciation with ease of use. Charles Metzger's striking photographs, taken under ideal studio conditions, perfectly complement her vigorous text.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [111]-112).

Clary Illian has laid out the basic application of function and graphic design in very sensible, applicable chapters. Her "assignments" are each clearly described, easy to follow, and easy to appreciate regarding their benefit to the student. As a beginning potter, I appreciated her insight on how to begin experimenting with shapes, bases, and edges.
