Ceramists will welcome the return of this classic guide to creating clay figures--now revised with four new projects, updated galleries, and a fresh introduction!

With plenty of how-to images, this accessible beginner's guide teaches the art of making beautiful ceramic figures--both human and animal. Anyone who has ever rolled a "snake" out of clay or pinched a piecrust can easily complete the 12 skill-building projects here. Master teacher Susan Halls explores four basic techniques: pinching, slab building, coiling, and dowel work. Learn how to pinch a pot with a deep bowl shape, and use this technique to construct a plump pig. With the slab building method, you can make an enchanting bird-relief tile or turn a favorite family photo into a delightful diorama. The book also offers invaluable advice on setting up a studio or home workspace, using slips, and choosing a glaze. Galleries featuring a range of ceramic work illustrate the creative possibilities of each featured technique.
