ARCHITECTURAL CERAMICS for the Studio Potter
This is a fabulous new book touching on a relatively new phenomenon, the use of large-scale, sculptural ceramics in architecture. In a sense it is a return to the days of terracotta, but with modern glazes and decorative techniques, architectural ceramics have taken a leap into the 21st century.
There is so much to inspire here, featuring large-scale pictures of the work of the author and a number of other artists in this medium. Full instructions are given to build several architectural pieces, but in such a way that they can be used to create a much wider range of items.
Everything is covered in detail; from the establishment of a workshop, through making, glazing and firing to fixing the end product using literally hundreds of colour illustrations to show each step. RECOMMENDED!
