Format: Paperback
Technique wise, this is a book for those just starting to learn clay sculpture. The illustrations are informative and described techniques, simple. It has a useful section on smoke firing. The remainder of the book has some excellent inspirational illustrations that would please potters of all levels but especially the beginner.

Making Ceramic Sculpture 11 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A beautiful ceramic sculpture book... this book deals with handbuilding sculpture work. It is both for learning and looking, has several step by step projects you can follow along with and a gallery full of wonderful images in the back half of the book. There is also good information on finishing your ceramic work, and even talks about alternative finishes on clay such as oil paints, acrylics and experimenting with your finishes.

Sculptors in other media will be inspired 16 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a sculpture student who has worked primarily in wood and plaster, I wasn't interested in this book as much for technique as for a photo gallery of contemporary sculpture. I was blown away. I will be taking ceramics in the future, and now I can hardly wait to get my hands on clay; I was fascinated by the different styles possible in this medium. Those coming from a ceramics background will have an entirely different appreciation for this book (I don't know anything about the techniques introduced, but the author made them seem very 'do-able'). At any rate, it's a wonderful book to peruse, and stimulate that creative muse.

"Making Ceramic Sculpture Techniques" is an excellent "
how to" book for the beginning student. It provides you with basic good information about clay and how to different sculptures using different techniques. It is a good starting point.
