Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Applied decoration is the key to transforming plain pots into works of art. Clay sprigs, photo transfers, and gilding are just some of the elements of effective ceramic embellishment described by studio potter and teacher Mills. Examples of finished pots by other artists appear throughout. Full of ideas, this book is a good selection for public library or academic art collections.

I really enjoyed reading this, I read it from cover to cover in a day. The information is dead useful and I will definitely be keeping it in my pottery studio! Covers everything from Terra Sig to Sgraffito, it's great! Even covers different kinds of kiln firing and Decoration techniques for all three stages; greenware, bisque, and post glaze. Definitely a must have!

This book is an excellent resource for the potter who is looking to try something new on the outside of their pottery.
