Book Description

Form has always been one of the most important aspects of ceramics. In this book, Peter Lane presents an exploration of the various elements involved in the design and making of ceramics, by concentrating on the two fundamental pottery forms - bowls and bottles. Looking at the work of an international group of artists, he explains the potters' working methods and processes, describes their ideas and sources of stimulus and shows the beautiful work they have done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book but pity about the illustrations 14 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This is a really good book. Peter Lane has done a marvellous job and the book serves not only as an interesting item to have around but a source of endless ideas stemming from the information about work done both by the author and by other potters wordwide. It is however a great disappointment that many of the illustrations are in black and white, even in the section of the book dealing with decoration where colour is fundamental. I would have given this book five crowns but for this. In this age with a book of this price the publishers could have given better value and I know that I shall be constantly disappointed as I peer at the black and white photos and try to imagine the colours from the descriptions given.
