Slipcasting, 27 Nov. 2008
This is an immensely useful book giving practical advice by a very experienced expert in this area, Sasha Wardell. The book addresses both the basic knowledge and understanding covering the material and tools, then moving on to sections on Model making, mould making and slip casting, followed by the challenge of bone china (a particular expertise of the author) with a final section looking at experts from around the world. there is a lot of technical detail as well as troubleshooting charts to understand what might go wrong and how to fix it. An excellent book on this topic, which is only to be expected from both the series of ceramic handbooks from A&C Black, and from such an experienced artist as Sasha Wardell. In my view well worth buying for those ceramicists wishing to explore slipcasting or for collectors and students wishing to understand more about this ceramic technique.
