Rate this:
With classes in more than ten media, instruction by only the finest practitioners, and an atmosphere of friendly exchange between artists, Penland is the place for crafters to improve and broaden their skills. Here, ceramists will discover technical and inspirational resources from the masters that will carry their art to new levels. Each Penland professional represented specializes in a particular technique or method; photographs show them working, as well as feature their art. Expressly for this volume, they have written accompanying essays and chosen pieces by other artists to complement their own. Clara "Kitty" Couch fashions deeply glowing coil built vessels; Angela Pozo's lively tiled mosaics shimmer with color; Michael Sherrill builds beautiful sculptural objects that hold layer upon layer of color as texture. There are others who do mold-making and slip casting; majolica; wheel-thrown forms; slab reliefs; and much more. This is one book that will never leave the studio!
