Library Journal Review

Architectural ceramics are large decorative elements incorporated into buildings or left free-standing as sculptures or fountains. King gives practical information for advanced potters from his own professional experience with large-scale projects that must be fitted into pre-existing spaces. He describes equipment, shaping, firing, and the logistics of installation; all illustrated with color photographs. Step-by-step projects include contemporary style bathroom sinks, countertops, door and fireplace surrounds. An artistically excellent book for crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
