Book Description

21 Aug 2006 Ceramics Handbooks
This practical handbook shows how to combine other materials with ceramics. Once a ceramic piece is finished it can be embellished or added to with a wooden or metal handle, glass stopper, or plastic or resin knob. Extra pieces can be glued on such as feathers, recycled materials (old tins etc.) or other bits of ceramic. Ceramics and Mixed Media examines the best methods of combining and fitting these materials together - including some inside the kiln. It covers the practicalities and specific problems that occur when trying to put different materials together and its informative text is supported by many helpful illustrations. The book uses many contemporary artists work for both information and inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book! 7 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback
I really really love this book. It is full of loads of inspiring and high quality photos, and covers many ways of combining different media with clay.It offers ideas and projects, but is also a great book to just pick up and browse. Written clearly and concisely it leaves me wanting to try so many new things, to experiment with different craft, and looking at ceramics in a new light. This book will not disappoint!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pottery plus 13 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
This is a perfect introduction for anyone wishing to experiment with their potting using other materials. It is well illustrated with the pictures effectively complementing the text. There is plenty of useful technical detail but even a less experienced potter will find inspiration.
