Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

With its nine ceramic projects, Ceramic Studio puts your hands in wet clay for a purpose. Artist/teacher Emily Reason invites beginners to get productively messy as they create wheel-thrown ceramics including a pitcher, a mug, a teapot, and a fluted baking dish. Reason covers basics, fundamental forms, and more advanced techniques even as crafters produce their first fledgling masterpieces. (P.S. In hardcover, Ceramic Studio was released as Ceramics for Beginners: Wheel Throwing.)

Library Journal
Raku and wheel throwing are basic pottery techniques covered in many books. Branfman (Raku: A Practical Approach) provides up-to-date information on this low-fire technique with new glaze recipes and hands-on suggestions for kiln building and firing. Artist and teacher Reason shows throwing on the potter's wheel in great detail through photos and practice exercises. Although these aren't essential purchases, Branfman's materials and techniques support the recent evolution in raku away from the traditional Japanese fire-in-the-pit method, and Reason's well-illustrated and attractive book may be more accessible for beginners than some of the older books libraries hold.
