Sustainable Ceramics

$29.97

More and more, artists are interested in producing work that’s not only beautifully designed and produced, but also environmentally friendly and socially responsible. In Sustainable Ceramics, pioneer Robert Harrison draws on more than forty years of working in clay to present practical possibilities for ceramic artists. This book covers all the factors to consider when going ‘green’, from fuels and alternative firing technology to energy-saving methods, sustainable ways to collect and use clay itself, and ways to deal with waste materials and save water. Harrison suggests simple and achievable methods by which to reduce the carbon footprint of ceramic art, and offers examples throughout of potters and clay artists who reclaim, reuse and recycle in their work. Sustainable Ceramics is an essential resource for any ceramicist, studio or school wishing to reduce the impact of their practice on the environment.

Ceramic Art: Innovative Techniques

$19.97

When it comes to innovation, ceramic artists rank at the top. What is it about clay that brings out the creative spirit in us? Unlike a canvas to be painted or a stone to be carved, clay presents unlimited possibilities. You can shape it, throw it, pour it, carve it, stamp it, paint it—anything. It’s the most versatile of mediums. For creative artists choosing clay, there’s no telling what the results will be. In this collection of techniques, profiles and projects, more than 25 innovative artists explore some of the vast possibilities clay has to offer. From Amy Santoferraro’s Plate-O-Matic and Shuji Ikeda’s elegant woven baskets to using clay as a canvas, there’s no end to the possibilities.

Studio Ceramics: Advanced Techniques

$19.97

There are scores of techniques, hundreds of variations and thousands of combinations in ceramics.

This compilation of techniques from a wide spectrum of experienced clay artists illustrates the variables of figuring out processes, perfecting techniques and combining some really weird stuff to come up with something different. In Studio Ceramics you’ll find techniques for double-walled vessels, miniatures, templates, carving, sculpting, mixed media, throwing, handbuilding, surface decoration, photo transfers, and much more.
