Clay body additions can introduce remarkable new forms and textures in ceramic work. With an emphasis on creativity and experimentation, ceramicist Kathleen Standen reveals a range of possible effects, and profiles the extraordinary work of contemporary makers using additions in their practice. Beginning with an introduction to collecting local clay and making your own clay bodies, the book moves on to cover the array of additions being used by artists today, from hard materials like stones, glass and rust, to combustible matter and fibre, metals including wire and mesh, and colour in various forms. The book is lavishly illustrated throughout with both unique making methods and the beautiful finished works of ceramic artists from around the world. Additions to Clay Bodies is an inspiring introduction to the art of using additions and an essential companion for any artist wishing to expand their practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Standen was a science teacher in her earlier career. This gives her the perfect background to pen a book of this nature. Her experience is evident in the text which has a clear and comprehensive voice in the step-by-step instructions on how to implement the techniques... Standen uses a warm narrative that softens the technical writing of the book. -- Tina Darb O'Sullivan * Irish Examiner *
A very practical book for ideas with which to spend many hours in the workshop. -- Wladimir Vivas * InfoCeramica *
The clay used at Aylesford Pottery comes prepared for use. But that can be just the starting point. Too often students are concentrating on how to make shapes and decorate them. This book takes you to a new experimental level by encouraging you to think about the actual texture of the clay itself. And what a revelation that can be. This book will take your creativity to a whole new level. -- Billy Byles, Aylesford Pottery * Aylesford School of Ceramics Newsletter *
