5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book!
I took up pottery about eight months ago and have become slightly addicted! I have bought a few books on pottery and ceramics and this is one of my favourates. Some of the other books i have read are quite dated in the designs and decoration of the pottery. However, this book is contemporary with lots of lovely designs to have a go at.

3.0 out of 5 stars it's ok...
Bought as a teaching resource for a pottery department. Some good ideas. Well set out with beginners, intermediate and then advanced projects. It's all very white. I don't really know why I can't bring myself to like it more, maybe because it is just very similar work throughout and some ideas our students will never do like make their own slip cast moulds, so some of the...

I took up pottery about eight months ago and have become slightly addicted! I have bought a few books on pottery and ceramics and this is one of my favourates. Some of the other books i have read are quite dated in the designs and decoration of the pottery. However, this book is contemporary with lots of lovely designs to have a go at. Some of the designs in this book are still a bit beyond me but there are some basic/beginner items to make but also there are the more advanced items to work towards. This book is not the best for explaining the techinical side of pottery and if this is what you are after you would be better investigating some of the other books available. But if its contemporary design ideas you are after or just some inspiration then this book is perfect.

Bought as a teaching resource for a pottery department. Some good ideas. Well set out with beginners, intermediate and then advanced projects. It's all very white. I don't really know why I can't bring myself to like it more, maybe because it is just very similar work throughout and some ideas our students will never do like make their own slip cast moulds, so some of the book is no good to us. Also has a lot of white paper with a few images on a page so looks thicker than it needs to be! But otherwise it does have some good suggestions for people who struggle to come up with something to do.

When I moved here to France my kiln, chemicals etc all went into mothballs, actually into the cave!

Now all have emerged and this book is reawakening my interest, sketch pad is out, designs drawn and glazes decided upon. Winter looms, -1.2 this morning. Good book which has activated the brain cells!
