Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book really is a college course in ceramic design boiled down to its essentials. Studio potters and clay artists who have experienced the process of designing through trial and error, and are looking for alternatives will find helpful tips in this guide book."

"After developing a design and making a maquette, you'll firm up the details with a technical drawing, using rulers, protractors, compasses and French curves. Here the book is quite helpful, explaining how to use all of these things, and what a conventional technical drawing calls for."

"If you'd like to come up with something new and different for your work, or just change your process a little, this book can help you. And if you think you might actually want to try designing for industry, this is definitely the place to start."

— Sumi von Dassow Pottery Making Illustrated, November/December 2008

KLIATT
AGERANGE: Ages 17 to adult.

Quinn teaches design concepts at a college in London and he also works to develop designs for major British china companies. This is sophisticated, with beautifully displayed photographs of a variety of ceramic projects. It is not a how-to manual for teaching techniques for potters. Rather it focuses on design and developing design, working with a variety of methods, such as coil pottery, molds, throwing on a wheel. For that reason, it is for students of pottery and ceramics who have gone beyond the basics and who yearn to know more about design principles. Reviewer: Claire Rosser

    Good for beginners or advanced designers of clay objects.

    Bought this for my students who had never worked in clay and had no idea how to conceptualize their ideas. I liked the way the book started with fundamentals and took you through the practical steps of making your vision a reality. The hardest lesson for me to impart to students is that they need a firm idea of the final object before they start, otherwise they spend a lot of time tearing down and rebuilding their project. This book showed them how to move from original concept to finished project without a lot of wasted motion and time.

    Some parts of the book are strictly for the advanced ceramist, but can be used as steps towards personal goals. Very good on designing for mass production, but wish there had been more emphasis towards studio work and/or sculptural projects. Not sorry I purchased it.
