Details: Working with clay is a deeply satisfying creative hobby, but many would-be potters are put off because they don't know how to get started. Pottery Basics shows the way. With instructive, clearly captioned, step-by-step photos on every page, it teaches everything they need to know to start making, decorating, and firing pottery. It also presents twelve simple projects that encourage beginning potters to put their new skills into practice. Expert potter Jacqui Atkin instructs on:

  • Types of clay
  • Basic modeling methods such as throwing, pinching, coiling, and trimming
  • Techniques for bisque and glaze firing, and much more

    Beginners learn to make vases, trays, tiles, and many other attractive objects. They also learn techniques for creating designs, color combinations, and textures with inlays, slips, feathering, and burnishing. Separate sections instruct on clay preparation, on using a potter's wheel, and on firing in the kiln. Hundreds of instructive and inspiring color photos.
