Throwing
Throwing
 
Throwing is an important skill for any potter to master, using only a few tools, the guidance of the hands, and the momentum of a wheel. Richard Phethean describes essential techniques for working on the wheel with an eye to the practical. He covers a range of forms, from simple domestic pots to more complex vessels, with the aim of building makers’ confidence in throwing techniques. This book features clear instructions for creating each type of vessel, accompanied by step-by-step how-to images, which demonstrate the techniques described. It also profiles the work of contemporary potters, for whom throwing is a vital part of their practice. Throwing is an essential companion for anyone attempting to master the art of forming pots on the wheel.

Throwing Large
Throwing Large
 
Throwing large work is definitely challenging and takes a different approach than throwing normal-sized pots. Nic Collins looks at throwing purely from the perspective of making very large work. He assumes you can already throw, but different techniques are needed when making large work because of all the added problems—buckling, collapsing, warping—not to mention that the techniques needed to physically throw much larger work are very different. Nic looks at all of this, offering clear guidance on how to make work successfully, covering the various traditional techniques used (such as those used by the Onggi potters of Korea), as well as how to avoid disastrous pitfalls.

Wall Pieces
Wall Pieces
 
Using clay as an artistic treatment for wall space is an increasingly fashionable and innovative solution for decorators, architects and makers. Wall pieces are the perfect solution for those who enjoy sculpture but have no space; they fulfill the same function as a picture while being much more dynamic and three-dimensional. Current wall pieces vary enormously from simple tiled works to huge installations, and this book looks at the huge variety of work being made, as well as all the problems, solutions and diverse approaches to wall pieces. Wall Pieces provides an insight into the work of contemporary makers, exploring how to plan, design, make, mount and safely hang ceramic pieces. It’s also illustrated with a wide selection of original and inspiring work by contemporary ceramic artists.
