This is a great book to get out if you are concidering the pursute of pottery. It gives you a hands on experience to get use to the feel, properties and techniques that you can use for clay. I started out handbuilding before even throwing on the wheel and would have found this book helpful as a starters guide. Fun book to look at.

"With a focus on ceramic techniques that require only hands and basic tools, Pinch Pottery allows crafters to eschew expensive equipment and simply start creating -- no pottery wheel required. Potter Susan Halls' teaching style is wonderfully clear and accessible, and her coverage of basic pinch pottery shapes, methods, and surface treatments is further enhanced by up-close, photographic instructions. The nine featured designs include timeless standards such as a vase and a bowl as well as more unusual pieces such as a teapot and an hors d'oeuvres tray. Once you've mastered these handbuilding essentials, try taking your decorative skills up a notch with Maureen Mills' Surface Design for Ceramics." Home, Garden, and DIY May 2014 newsletter
