5.0 out of 5 stars 500 Pitchers 28 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
All the books that I have read in the 500 series, or more appropriately, looked at as they are mostly images, have been an excellent resource. Great for inspiration and teaching purposes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great source of ideas 3 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was shown to me by my pottery instructor on a pottery holiday in France. It's a rich source of ideas with basic construction and decorating information that is very useful. I go to it when I'm looking for a new idea. Bought a used copy for an absolute steal,

3.0 out of 5 stars 500 pitchers 12 Nov 2006
By Lorie Schinko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I own 9 of this "500" series of Lark books. This one,on Pitchers,was not inspiring to me,on the whole.That may be due to that I tend to work with low fire glazes,and am not keen on alot of stoneware glazing-something this book has a lot of.If you are a potter, and love highfire glazes,you may love this book.I sure wish I did,but as I personally do not,I sold it to a friend who is a lover of stoneware techniques. She tells me she likes it very much!In case your wondering,I have the animals,figures and bowls,cups and teapots! These publications I am extremely pleased with.Most of these have seriously unconventional approaches,and thats what I love!This particular selection would be great for someone who is a practical potter,and wants inspiration to futher their love of what they like to do best.Just because I didn't like it for my own personal use,You just might love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas on an Ancient Item 16 Aug 2006
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Pitchers have been around since pottery was invented, and probably before that. And the basic elements of the design haven't changed much since. You have to have a handle, a spout, a foot, and a belly. After that there is almost an infinite variation in design opportunities. And this book shows 500 (I guess, I didn't count them myself but that's what the title says) pitchers from hundreds of artists, from about 2002 through 2005.

It's an idea book for the budding potter, or the one searching for a new concept. It shows what the modern artists are doing and it is proof positive that the design efforts of the modern potters continue to be as creative as those that went before. Here is every style from Greece to ultra modern, from American gas station to oriental porcelain, from wheel thrown to slab built. It is beautifully photographed and printed.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent series 27 May 2007
By Melissa Bridgman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this entire series of pottery books is wonderful. They're inspiring and cover a wide range of styles and techniques. My own tastes and pottery style aspire more to classic wedgwood and chinese porcelains rather than the more popular organic, earthy pottery one usually sees. It is nice that this series includes examples from the entire spectrum of contemporary potters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent idea book for the potter 14 Aug 2006
By N. Braches - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This, as well as all of Lark's 500 series are great for the pottery studio. Not only do they show the creativity of many potters but when students/potters are in a rut, it can take you right out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I altogether love the 500 series. 10 Mar 2010
By S. Dane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I really like a book that has lots of pictures of many pieces and all of them in colour. I think the whole '500' of 'whatevers' is a great series. I think I have them all. They all have my recommendation.
