Ceramics
by Richard Zakin


Reviewer: Sandra L. Young from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Ceramics Ways of Creation provides a refreshing venue for currently practicing ceramic artists to explain their processes, description of materials and methods, motivations and philosophies of purpose. Ample colorful illustrations expose the substance of each artist's work. This is an "inside peek" at what makes our contemporary ceramics scene "tick". Each artist is unique but a common love of the clay medium unites them.

The Craft and Art of Clay (3rd Edition)
by Susan Peterson

From Booklist
Ceramists of all levels require a manual that both emphasizes technical know-how and devotes space to inspiring creativity with examples of innovative work. Peterson's expanded, copiously illustrated volume incorporates an extensive amount of valuable material for potters studying wheel-throwing or hand-built sculpture, clay and glaze chemistry, mold making, decorating methods, or firing techniques. Although many of the step-by-step photographs would be more effective if larger, Peterson cannot be faulted for her comprehensive approach to the subject matter. In addition to a compendium filled with information, there are engaging portfolios showing the historical evolution of ceramic art and a gallery of contemporary artists' works. For arts-and-craft collections, this resource offers instruction in all areas of ceramics.

Colour in Clay, an inspiration in its own right, is an invaluable guide for those who wish to take advantage of the enormous range of color stains now available.

Jane Waller has an advanced degree in Ceramics from the Royal College of Art; she has been making Millefiori and Raku ceramics for more than20 years.

Pottery on the Wheel
by Elsbeth S. Woody,

Reviewer: A reader from Texas
The text is detailed, but easy to understand and the pictures do an excellent job of reinforcing the concept. I have been throwing for about a year, but reached a point where I was "stuck" and couldn't seem to move forward. After only ONE day of using the techniques in this book, I was able to double the amount of clay I could successfully throw and the results were better than anything I had previously produced. This is the best book there is on throwing.
