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.
