Ceramic Transfer Printing
Ceramic Transfer Printing
 
Ceramic transfer (or decal) printing, provides an exciting creative potential for any ceramic artist. With the up-to-date techniques detailed here, you can transfer pictures, patterns or text onto both two- and three-dimensional forms. Most importantly, printing on ceramics achieves distinct aesthetic effects not possible using any other decorating techniques. Transfers, or decals, have great potential as a means of creative expression. Printmaking allows reproduction of both photographic and ‘hand drawn’ imagery, pattern and text onto the surface of two and three-dimensional ceramic objects.

Ceramics and the Human Figure
Ceramics and the Human Figure
 
The human figure has been represented in clay throughout history and continues to evolve today. Artists are working with the figure in new ways, playing with materials and forms, and making use of new technologies to produce challenging and unconventional work, from the intact whole figure to the fragmented, hybrid and abstract. Divided by broad themes, each chapter features a variety of different expressive works from a range of international ceramic artists. This book explores the role of figurative ceramics through history and in contemporary contexts, and also reveals the methods of six key contemporary artists, using how-to images to illustrate their techniques.

Coiling
Coiling
 
Coiling is one of the most versatile of ceramic techniques. The plasticity of clay invites potters to roll it between their hands to produce a coil that can be joined to form the wall of a hollow vessel. Pots of enormous size and amazing variety can be made using this method. Sculptural pieces can also be crafted using coils, creating forms that range from human and animal to very abstract shapes. Net Wt. is .64 lbs.

Colouring Clay
Colouring Clay
 
From sugar whites and pastel pinks to toasted browns and deep sea blues, the wide spectrum of colored clay offers an array of possibilities for creative ceramicists. By using the clay itself as the sole means of decoration, potters can achieve effects that range from subtle gradation to dramatic shifts, all integrated into the structure of their creation. Working with colored clay demands a special, disciplined approach, but the rewards are many. Beginning with a brief introduction to historic forms such as encaustic tile, sprigging, and art pottery, Coloring Clay explains the principal techniques for working with colored clay. This detailed, practical handbook takes artists though the clay and stain selection process to forming and firing, outlining proven procedures that produce optimum results. Readers will learn to use coiling and handbuilding for marbled effects, make Wedgwood-style applied reliefs, incorporate swirls and subtle hues into wheel-thrown pieces with mixes and overlays, or apply inlays to slipcast works for modern geometric patterns. Jo Connell also covers loaf and cane forms such as agate, nerikomi, and millefiori, as well as textural effects.
