Library Journal Review

Clearly intended as a text for art students, this book is inadequate to present either the technical or aesthetic aspects of claywork. A large selection of uneven black-and-white photographs and a small group of color shots are paired with a text of utter banality. Anyone unfamiliar with ceramic technique will be unable to understand the fragmentary instructions or follow the cryptic photo sequences of various methods of forming clay shapes. Anyone able to fill the gaps from personal knowledge has no need of such an elementary book. The poor binding will also limit use. Much preferred is Charlotte Speight's Images in Clay Sculpture: Historical and Con temporary Techniques (HarperCollins, 1983).-- David McClelland, Temple Univ. Lib., Philadelphia (c) Copyright 2010.
