Artist Emily Reason takes the beginner ceramist through nine projects, starting from one of two fundamental forms (cylinder or bowl). Color bands throughout point the reader to related information on various techniques, while gallery sections provide inspiration.

Editorial Reviews

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.
