COPY ISBN
Stone’s first book explores pottery making using air-dry and polymer clay. Unlike working with traditional clay, hand-building or on a wheel, polymer clay requires less time and space, and no expensive outlay for tools and equipment. Crafters can use a home oven and other tools that can easily be found in the house. Forty projects are covered step by step. These attractive and creative pieces are suitable for crafters with little or no experience making ceramics. The techniques are basic to pottery making, and are simple to follow and reproduce. The featured projects cover a wide array of functional and decorative pieces including planters, bookends, incense holders, and jewelry or soap holders. Many items would be suitable to make as gifts, and a number would be appropriate for supervised children to try.
VERDICT Stone gives good coverage of a fun new medium to explore, especially as people spend more time at home. This book will appeal to a wide audience of clay artists, both beginning and more experienced. It is a good basic, instructional resource.
