Summary

Summary

Susan Peterson, the author of the acknowledge master course on ceramics, The Craft and Art of Clay, has at last written an introductory book for both the novice and developing potter. Beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs, Working in Clay guides readers step-by-step through the creation of an object in clay. In engaging and clear language, Peterson offers advice based on many years of teaching and creating ceramics. From hand-building to wheel-throwing, decorating to firing in a kiln, the author details the process, with photographs accompanying each step. Examples from contemporary ceramic artists throughout the world provide inspiration and add to the book's usefulness and beauty.
