Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many books contain the word bible in the title, but few are as complete as designer Taylor's ceramics guide, which includes a wealth of material about technique, as well as inspiration for artists working with clay. Novice artists looking for guidance on a particular technique—whether hand building, slip casting, or throwing—will find step-by-step directions, and experienced artists interested in mixing their own clays or glazes will find a number of recipes. Ample full-color photographs, both instructional and inspirational, are included. Ceramics is a popular hobby, and this guide will appeal to a variety of artists.
