Few useful specifics, 10 Jun. 2009
Phil Rogers' Throwing Pots book in this series I found very useful, so I had similar expectations for this. Unfortunately, it covers too wide a range of subjects in too few pages to go into any topic in useful detail. I wanted real specifics about what clays, glazes and equipment to buy, where to get them, how to make tools, what furniture to buy/make and and, well... how to set up a pottery workshop. Too much of this book is filler: murky photographs or inane comments like 'home-made packaging can be made from supermarket carrier bags filled with crumpled paper.' A waste of money.
