Excerpt from The Potter's Craft: A Practical Guide for the Studio and Workshop

This Book is the outcome of an experience extending over a period of thirty-six years. Twenty years ago it would have been impossible for the science of ceramics was not then born. Ten years ago it would have been wasted for the Artist-potter in America had not arrived but now the individual workers are many and the science is well established.

Written teaching must be imperfect, but I have endeavored to set down the exact methods by which my students are taught, in the hope that those who cannot secure personal instruction may read and understand.

As far as possible didactic statements have been avoided and the attempt has been made to lead every student to experiment and to think for himself. In other words, I have tried to erect sign-posts and occasional warnings rather than to remove all obstacles from the road.
