Product Description

Over the years I have kept lists of items that could be made in clay, and have worked out just how to make them and make them work.  Divided into categories such as For The Kitchen, Musical Instruments, For the Garden, and more, how much clay to use and more.  From wiring lamps to making whistles.  Plus assorted tips and resources for various supplies.

I made and photographed every piece to illustrate the items, and they are unglazed, undecorated, and embellished so as not to distract from the “how to” element.  Also include are finished examples of selected objects by various ceramic artists.
