Pottery You Can Use synopsis
We all use porcelain on a daily basis without thinking too much, except when it comes to a favorite cup or cup, for example. Why is it preferred? Do you have the right amount of tea or coffee? Does it sit comfortably in the hand with a wide handle that allows you to carry it safely? Is the clay made of the cup - soft porcelain or strong stone? Is it a rural form or a refined, delicate, traditional or contemporary design? Maybe you just like the style from the outside! Whatever the reason, someone will think in the cup environment when they are designed and manufactured and all the other ceramic materials you use, to make sure they work perfectly and give you pleasure in dealing and serving food and drink in.
This book is a visual feast of ideas and advice to guide the maker through the process of designing and making successful functional ceramics which are equally attractive and practical. It adopts a low-tech approach that is understandable and accessible to all and begins with the basic questions that you will need to address before you begin.
Each component of the process will be carefully considered, from item identification function to descent mode, core graphics manufacturing, proper mud selection, tooling, method making, and finally glazing and shooting, including safety and necessary subject matter issues for food. Each chapter starts with a variety of basic shapes, whether they are put in or installed manually.
The following section shows a wide range of handles, rims, feet, covers, handles, stains, lips and other details that can be blended and matched to form unique designs with features and functions. The entire process early can reap tremendous rewards, ensuring that the maker gets right for the first time but also allows to repeat the process with the least effort.
From the idea to the final element, this book will be the basic proof of all the techniques needed to make functional ceramics actually works and gives lasting pleasure to use.
