Art of Throwing
|INSIDE:||300 colour photographs|
The art of throwing is more than a skilful technique: in order for thrown pots to have meaning, it is vital that the integral role played by materials, process, context and precedent is considered.
Topics covered include: clay preparation; how to begin throwing; developing skills and dealing with complex forms. Step-by-step photographs follow the throwing of various pot types and capture the delicate methods of pulling a handle or fitting a spout. Lavish illustrations of finished work and interviews with leading potters then demonstrate the diverse ways in which throwing is used and the opportunities it presents.
