Sustainable Ceramics
Sustainable Ceramics
 
More and more, artists are interested in producing work that’s not only beautifully designed and produced, but also environmentally friendly and socially responsible. In Sustainable Ceramics, pioneer Robert Harrison draws on more than forty years of working in clay to present practical possibilities for ceramic artists. This book covers all the factors to consider when going ‘green’, from fuels and alternative firing technology to energy-saving methods, sustainable ways to collect and use clay itself, and ways to deal with waste materials and save water. Harrison suggests simple and achievable methods by which to reduce the carbon footprint of ceramic art, and offers examples throughout of potters and clay artists who reclaim, reuse and recycle in their work. Sustainable Ceramics is an essential resource for any ceramicist, studio or school wishing to reduce the impact of their practice on the environment.

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.

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 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.
