Library Journal Review

This updated edition of Hopper's book on pottery form for advance studio potters has many new color illustrations, which complement a text that was already remarkable for its breadth of coverage of historic and contemporary pottery intended for household use. Each chapter discusses the practical and aesthetic considerations, aside from issues of individual artistic expression, that the potter must take into account when shaping specific items such as teapots. The last section has professional biographies of 17 potters, including updates on seven from the first edition. This new edition is highly recommended for all arts and crafts collections.
