Summary, etc.:
Create cups, mugs, bowls, and more pieces that are perfect for you! Everyone who owns a beloved mug that has just the right handle, an agreeably deep cereal bowl, or a plate that fits perfectly in the dishwasher knows that once you've found these pieces, you wish you had more of them. You will learn how to create the pieces that will work best for you. Each element of the creative process is explained, including: deciding the function of the item; working out proportions and making basic drawings; choosing the right clay and tools; design decisions, techniques to consider, variations to contemplate; picking the best method: throwing, slabbing, or coiling; choosing food-safe glazes; and more. This book explains how to throw and hand-build pieces that are beautiful and practical, from plates, cups, and saucers to casserole dishes, pitchers, and tureens.
