    OK if you are starting to experiment and are looking for ideas, Gives advice on various additions and their effects,do s and don t s.I felt it was rather light on information, Only one addition I had not heard of.

    Not as exciting as I expected, a lot of ideas already known, hoped it would be a bit innovative.

    Other reviewers were right it s of a picture book than a technical guide to the subject introduced All of the subjects are interesting, and there are many photos were I wanted to emulate what was going on But there is no technical guide or explanation to any of this, and I am not talking about the lack of scientific terms or anything Pictures sometimes lack captions to explain what you re seeing, or they might be a page or two away from the paragraphs that explain what s going on Also, even though the author says that putting organic materials into an electric kiln is fine and provides safety concerns regarding it, most studios would never allow you to put 75% of the things described in this book into a kiln You d have to have your own studio to even attempt what s written in most of the chapters, and the other things that you can do have little explanation.

    It s a very nice book but it s mainly just pictures, with likeafew paragraphs of info in each section

  12. says:

    Good overview of posibilities Not a technical reference

  13. says:

    Basically a picture book showing the author s work LOTS of the author s work and a smattering of work by other artists, with bits of technical information here and there in case you were wondering about additions to clay bodies Not much on specific things to add to clay bodies or what to expect for results, but the color reproductions were nice so there s that.
