Customer Review

on 19 July 2007
This book describes the authors visit to Hamada in Japan, and explains the cycle of making that Hamada used, from clay preparation, to making, glazing and firing, and beyond. Just in terms of the process of making pots, it is a great description of what happens. It gives an insight in to Hamadas pots too and where they came from and the man himself.

But in fact, the book provides more than that. You can get see the workings of clay from a more fundamental perspective. I found myself thinking about what I do and how it isn't all that different. Which seems a bit grand, but then Hamada's methods and techniques were often simple, well thought out and in tune with his surroundings and beliefs, and perhaps that's why I found the book so inspirational (I'm having a night of reviewing books that have inspired me!) Once again, this is a book that I keep going back to and re-reading.
