The technique is simple; the results are gorgeous! Susan Halls has created an array of refined, sophisticated and incredibly modern-looking projects that are perfect for beginners, yet enticing for more seasoned ceramicists. The pieces range from a mug, vase, and jug to a bowl, teapot, and triple herb planter, and they start with a basic pinch pot before moving on to wider, taller, and more composite forms, all with stunning options for color and surface decoration. And, since many of the items can be made with easily found air-drying clay, no kiln’s required!

From simple to spectacular in one book. As a teacher of ceramics for 40 years I was delighted to see sparks of ideas igniteas I introduced my students to this inspiring and attractive book. The author’ssuccinct text and sequential flow of stages is crystal clear, and richly informativewithout being too technical . John Polak’s photography superbly illustrates theinstructions. This book guides you methodically and clearly from simple tospectacular with all the stages in between. It gently guides you from inspiration tothe problem solving perspiration of making.The book shows us how to elevate the rudimentary pinch pot associated with firstattempts at ceramics to the elegant and sophisticated evolutions of functionalware. An accomplished and internationally recognized ceramicist herself, shedraws on fundamental traditions of the past as well as contemporary internationalstudio ceramics. Exploratory doodles of incubating ideas give rise to resources…
