    This comprehensive workshop reference for ceramicists brings together a vast range of skills, techniques and technical data in one volume to provide an essential look-it-up resource for weekend crafters, students and professionals.

        ‘This is quite the guide … a very helpful book for those doing ceramics. The illustrations are wonderful. The instructions are clear and to the point’
         – Reference Reviews

    Techniques are explored thematically to help the process of discovery that takes place in the workshop, supported by detailed descriptions and step-by-step photography. This allows the maker to evolve ideas in a natural way, with techniques building upon each other. All techniques are examined closely for relevance to practice and quality of finish.

    The practical processes of running a workshop are discussed alongside the more complex techniques of making unique work. An extensive guide covers forming techniques, from pinch, coil, slab and wheel to mould-making, slip casting and extrusion, while detailed sections explore slip decoration, embossing and glazing, glaze recipes and applications.

    Examples of how to set up a studio, good workshop practices, tool-making and recycling of materials help you to create a perfect environment in which to work.

    The book also includes a comprehensive guide to firing and kilns, along with charts and tables for easy reference.

    Duncan Hooson has been a practising maker for over 25 years, employing a wide range of techniques on differing scales, from domestic functional work to sculpture and high-relief murals in the public realm. He has worked extensively as an artist-in-residence in schools, hospitals and on community projects and is co-director of the organisation Clayground Collective Ltd. He teaches in a variety of institutions and regularly at Morley College in London.

    Anthony Quinn has a successful design consultancy, working across a range of materials such as ceramics, glass, wood and metal and for a varied client base. A senior lecturer on the BA Ceramic Design course at Central Saint Martins in London, he is also the author of The Ceramics Design Course and the coordinator of the UK Crafts Council’s ‘Firing Up’ programme.
