Product Description

Review

Petrie shares his wisdom, experience and techniques in this very comprehensive work ... a serious reference tome for both the student and the artist. London Potters News New and exciting ... Well produced offering a clear and well-structured layout in both its historical analysis and new technical developments ... Highly recommended. South Wales Potters' Newsletter This title is the first in a new series called "The new ceramics", with which the publisher will offer a contemporary vision of different areas of ceramic art. In this case concerning the transfer of images on ceramic support was studied from traditional techniques to the use of computers. [Translated from] Revista de Libros

About the Author

Professor Kevin Petrie is Programme Leader for MA Ceramics and MA Glass at the University of Sunderland, as well as supervising a large cohort of Ph.D. students. He developed a personal approach to making transfer-printed ceramics, based on his drawings, while studying Illustration at the University of Westminster. This led to an MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art, London. Aspects of this book build on his Ph.D., water-based ceramic transfer printing, from the Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England, Bristol as well as on his first book Glass and Print.

I can not remember how I learnt about this book but I am glad that I did and I am glad that I bought it.

A lot of the other books I looked into whilst trying to learn more about decals were written a while ago and from what I could see they did not reflect the options open to hobbyist potter today. This book covers the current options available, and it provides insights that help with producing a decal and applying it.

The author clearly writes from an academic background and perspective, but don't let this put you off. Kevin Petrie demonstrates a wealth of knowledge and experience that he shares in this book. The book delves into the very technical detailing different types of decal production methods and history. The photographs of peoples work he includes demonstrate well the subjects he describes and they are also inspirational.

All in all this book has something for everyone. If your looking for a technical book its here. If you are looking for ideas and inspiration its here. The amount of knowledge Kevin makes available here is amazing and well worth the money.

I am glad I have bought this book for the technical know how and discovering different techniques but it doesnt really tell you how to do it yourself. I am still getting my cups produced at printed.com.

probably adequate as a diploma research text but not a how to by any means. Disappointing as it inspires you to have a go without giving you the capabilities. Refers to another book, but i didn't find that one any good either. :-(

book is great-but it's impossible to source materials used 20 Jan 2013
By rachbick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
the book itself is fabulous, as other reviewers have stated. BUT, after using the links in the book, and google searches, and calls and emails to the companies listed as making the necessary supplies, it seems that the paper and printing mediums needed to carry out the methods described are currently unobtainable. frustrating! without them, the instructions are pretty much useless : (

Love this book! I've been looking for a book that would give me just the right steps to begin applying image transfers to my ceramic pieces. This one works for me.

General Ceramic Transfer Printing 101 15 Dec 2012
By Ron White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The resource is very limited in its application to specific needs of firing. If all you need or want is a general overview of these ceramic applications this is the book for you. It makes assumptions that requires one to make assumptions. These assumptions require one to have to make trial tests that do not work. As a ceramic teacher I have always found it necessary to have a what if section to technical education. What if the tile comes out with a scab on it where the image shoud be? What if there is just dust where the image should be? etc...
