Throwing large work is a challenging area and takes a different approach to throwing normal ware. This book looks at throwing purely from the perspective of making very large work. It assumes the reader can already throw, but different techniques are needed when making large work because of all the added problems - it can buckle during making, collapse if not moved to the kiln safely and warp in the firing. Not to mention that the techniques needed to physically throw much larger work are very different. This book looks at all of this, offering clear guidance on how to make work successfully, covering the various techniques used, (such as throwing on coils and throwing in sections, or blow-torching work before continuing to throw) as well as how to avoid disastrous pitfalls. Although we do have bits of information in other books, this would be a handy guide collecting all the relevant material. The handbook we already have called Large-scale Ceramics focuses on handbuilding.
