This book is a great "textbook" on pottery. The chapters include: Ceramics of the Past, Contemporary Ceramics, Clay and Clay Bodies, Forming Methods, Ceramic Form and Design, Decoration and Glazing, Glazes, Kilns, and Studio Equipment. It is full of awesome information and pictures which give great ideas for your own designs.
