A beautiful ceramic sculpture book... this book deals with handbuilding sculpture work. It is both for learning and looking, has several step by step projects you can follow along with and a gallery full of wonderful images in the back half of the book. There is also good information on finishing your ceramic work, and even talks about alternative finishes on clay such as oil paints, acrylics and experimenting with your finishes.

As a sculpture student who has worked primarily in wood and plaster, I wasn't interested in this book as much for technique as for a photo gallery of contemporary sculpture. I was blown away. I will be taking ceramics in the future, and now I can hardly wait to get my hands on clay; I was fascinated by the different styles possible in this medium. Those coming from a ceramics background will have an entirely different appreciation for this book (I don't know anything about the techniques introduced, but the author made them seem very 'do-able'). At any rate, it's a wonderful book to peruse, and stimulate that creative muse.

"Making Ceramic Sculpture Techniques" is an excellent "how to" book for the beginning student. It provides you with basic good information about clay and how to different sculptures using different techniques. It is a good starting point.

Very helpful for beginners or those wishing to perfect certain techniques. I like like the way he explained things, very easy to follow... and he helped me out of a rut.... there are some firing techniques here I've never even heard of and I recommend this book to anyone interested in sculpting

This book is a gentle instructor to anyone who wants to get into clay. He encourages you to find your style and gives easy to understand instructions as well as many different inspirational pieces to get your creative juices flowing!

Whenever I read a book and learn at least three things from it, I feel it was well worth it...and I did.

I'm a complete beginner and I love this book. It has photographs of really cool ceramics that are all inspirational. I go back and look at it whenever I'm wondering what to do next.
