In plain language and over 250 clear, instructive photographs, Pottery on the Wheel demonstrates to the novice potter every step in throwing the basic clay pottery shapes on the wheel. The student is told and shown how to wedge clay, what tools to use, how to throw cylindrical and open shapes, and how to trim the shapes. There are sections on the more specialized and advanced throwing techniques, such as throwing large pots, and coil and section throwing; and there are instructions for throwing specific forms such as teapots and pitchers. There is a chapter on pottery wheels, and appendices on clays, glazes, and kilns and firing.
