Overview

Contemporary ceramists have adapted printmaking techniques to transfer typography, lettering, drawings, or photographs onto clay surfaces. This comprehensive resource, new in paperback, will help you take advantage of these techniques—even if you have no printmaking background. No fancy equipment needed: just use silk-screen decals with light-sensitive emulsions to create a master image, cover with glazes, and voilá! Try colored slips for unique monoprints or experiment with stencils, relief blocks, and stamps. Each method is carefully laid out in gorgeous photos, with detailed firing instructions.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wandless provides here illustrations of completed works in a variety of clay transfer techniques by the author and a handful of other ceramics artists. This new paperback edition (first published in 2006) walks the reader through various ways in which flat images can be printed onto three-dimensional ceramic forms. The author, who has been practicing and teaching these techniques for years, provides many examples of his own successfully completed work, as well as some from other artists working with this unique combination of graphic and plastic arts. Step-by-step projects explain screen printing, monoprint, and relief printing techniques as they apply to the surface of clay. VERDICT Crafty and creative readers in search of something unusual can enjoy the hybrid art form described in this title.
