Illustrated Dictionary of Practical Pottery

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In the dictionary the author has collected together technical information to help craft potters. Included are analyses, charts, descriptions, definitions, formulas, materials and equipment, recipes, step-by-step instructions on processes, terms used in ceramics – information that is vital to all potters. There are 1200 entries, which are listed alphabetically, and over 450 illustrations including b/w photographs, graphs, line drawings, and 24 colour plates of finished work. The book has white boards and gilt titles, but cannot be seen fully because the jacket has been covered with a protective plastic film which is secured to the book end papers; the film has a few creases and small splits around the spine ends, and some general handling marks and light indentations. Inside, the end papers and half-title have some light foxing, and pages are very lightly tanned around edges; text is clean and bright. The book provides a foundation of knowledge which will help potters master the technique of their craft.
