Practical and useful guide., 17 Mar 2011
This book is a practical guide and will be relevant to anyone considering to establishing a workshop. It offers useful information and guidance on the type of problems which potters will encounter. There are many good sections including equipment, tools, kilns, business practice and selling. I was particularly interested in the examples of a variety of established workshops ranging from a room in a domestic house to large rural workshops in converted farm buildings. Each section also deals with relevant health and safety issues.
The previous reviewer who complained that he was not told which clay to use doesn't understand that this will depend on the requirements of each individual potter and process used, Raku, handbuilding, throwing etc. Truly a personal choice and not one to be second guessed by the author.
