Disappointing - best for beginners!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sources of Inspiration: For Ceramics and the Applied Arts (Paperback)
I bought this book because it had some great reviews here on amazon. The book is supposed to be inspiring but the photography is poor and the content is mediocre.
The book primarily shows you how you can use nature as a source of inspiration and then apply it to your work e.g. the natural pattern and texture found in a leaf can be replicated in an abstract way to a clay pot you're making. I don't know if it's just me but the the ideas and techniques shown are just too basic. If you are a complete beginner having never touched clay in your life, this book will be ok for you as a starting point but if you're quite a creative person already and looking for something to inspire you with more imaginative ideas, this book is best avoided!
