Coiling by Michael Hardy
Book DescriptionCoiling is one of the most versatile of ceramic techniques. The plasticity of clay invites potters to roll it between their hands to produce a coil that can be joined to form the wall of a hollow vessel. Pots of enormous size and amazing variety can be made using this method. Sculptural pieces can also be crafted using coils, creating forms that range from human and animal to very abstract shapes. Michael Hardy explores the use of this technique, from its history to its materials and methods. He examines coiled forms originating all over the world to show how potters and sculptors have adopted and developed this technique in a wide range of forms. Written for both amateur and expert potters, Coiling offers practical instruction and creative inspiration for employing coils in ceramic work.
