Product description

Synopsis

The art of throwing is more than a skilful technique: in order for thrown pots to have meaning, it is vital that the integral role played by materials, process, context and precedent is considered. Topics covered include: clay preparation; how to begin throwing; developing skills and dealing with complex forms. Step-by-step photographs follow the throwing of various pot types and capture the delicate methods of pulling a handle or fitting a spout. Illustrations of finished work and interviews with leading potters then demonstrate the diverse ways in which thowing is used and athe opportunities it presents.

About the Author

Alex McErlain has taught ceramics to degree level since 1976, lecturing at Manchester Metropolitan University. He maintains his own studio making thrown tableware and other pots. His work is represented in a number of public and private collections. The photographer Stephen Yates has worked on numerous ceramic research projects with the author.
