Synopses & Reviews
Featuring the same bright, open design as Ceramic Studio: Hand Building, this second entry in the series offers an introduction to the mechanics of wheel-thrown ceramics. Artist Emily Reason takes beginners through nine projects, including a mug, pitcher, teapot, and fluted baking dish. Starting from one of two fundamental forms (cylinder or bowl) she covers such basics as centering, pulling a handle, trimming, firing, and glazing. Color bands throughout point the reader to related information on various techniques, while gallery sections provide inspiration. This book was formerly published in hardcover as Ceramics for Beginners: Wheel Throwing.
