Description

Lively, informative and full of original tips and techniques Simon’s YouTube videos have lit the ceramics world on fire, becoming a must-see supplement to most potters’ educations. But therein lies the hitch; most potters don’t want to take a laptop into a ceramics studio. This is where Simon Leach’s Pottery Handbook comes in, encapsulating all of Simon’s basic techniques in one easy to carry book, from studio design and set up, to basic throwing techniques, adding appendages, trimming, glazing and firing. Simon Leach’s Pottery Handbook is perfectly suited for the studio, as it is portable and the concealed wire-o binding will help the book lay flat and stand up. For each technique, detailed step by step photography captures the subtle, intricate movements that typically fly by too fast to be noticed in a video. Plus the book includes a DVD with many of Simon’s YouTube videos; callouts throughout the book tell readers which video goes with each section. Gorgeous photos throughout the book show pots in various stages of production and finished results; something that is currently missing from the YouTube videos, so that an aspiring potter can see how the work will look once it has been fired.
