Every clay artist has a skill set that influences their work. If you prefer handbuilding or throwing, your work shows it. But there are hundreds of techniques, thousands of variations and millions of combinations that involve some aspect of forming and finishing. It's these combinations that make ceramic art so exciting and where no two ceramic artists produce the same work.
This is a book about variety, but, more importantly, about possibilities. It's a compilation of techniques from a wide spectrum of experienced clay artists who have figured out something unique in ceramics, perfected it, and documented it so others could take it to the next level. In Studio Ceramics you'll find techniques for double-walled vessels, miniatures, templates, carving, sculpting, mixed media, throwing, handbuilding, surface decoration, photo transfers, and much more.
