This comprehensive reference source and how-to manual encompasses the wide range of all ceramic techniques into one large, definitive volume. It was written for professional and amateur ceramicists, and for teachers of the art. The Workshop Guide to Ceramics describes materials, processes, tools, forming techniques, surface decoration, firing, glazes, and design of ceramic objects of all kinds.

Among those techniques are coil building, slab building, wheel throwing, model making, mold making, press molding, and others. Both pre-firing and post-firing decoration techniques are described. Also discussed in detail are kilns, their different styles and fuels, and how to use them. Artists who plan to develop a ceramics business are advised on creating a portfolio, and on promoting, exhibiting, and selling their work.
