Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
This book is a look at coiled pottery with both historical examples and descriptions of the methods of contemporary and ethnic potters who build in this way. It also discusses different approaches to making and decorating, as well as aesthetic qualities of the work.
In this colour edition, the author has brought the contemporary section up to date and included many new colour photographs throughout the book.
This is the classic book on the subject and it should appeal not only to potters but to anyone interested in the history of art and cultural studies.
