All areas covered

Creative Ideas for Clay Artists is organized into three sections that include pottery making, sculpture and finishing techniques. You’ll enjoy the detailed instructions for pinching large forms or throwing miniatures to spraying paper clay for large sculptures to bead making. For surface decoration ideas, how about trying out some resist and stencil techniques, or maybe some terra sig in a saggar fire? It’s all there.

 

 

Inspiring techniques

Inspired artists create inspired pieces. You’ll marvel at Dannon Rhudy handbuilding inside leather-hard forms, a monoprinting process for decorating, a Japanese master’s approach to making kados, slip casting in sand, sculptures for the wall, flexible molds,  smoke firing, masking, combining ceramic and photographic techniques, and even how to fire a clay building!

     

Fame is not an issue

You don’t have to be famous to know something about clay. Anderson states “I felt that the text should have articles by and about people who are not necessarily the most famous clay people, but are artists who have strong ideas or intriguing work. Some well-known artists have been included in the text, but those articles complement the rest of the book, not dominate it.”

 

Originally published in 2001, Creative Ideas for Clay Artists is now available as a downloadable PDF. When it’s loaded on your computer, you’re never more than a few clicks away from inspiration for your next clay project.
