Techniques Using Slips, Paperback / softback Book

Techniques Using Slips Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Techniques Using Slips examines the many techniques of using slips - liquid clay which can be used for decoration on its own or covered with glaze - such as brushing, dipping, trailing and sgraffito amongst others, and uses contemporary potters' works as illustrations.

It explains how to make up slips and englobes, as well as ways of using them at higher temperatures, both with and without glazes.

The book is illustrated with working potters in action, showing their own personal styles and how they have adapted traditional methods to suit their work today in a modern context.

As well as examples of techniques, there are many images of beautiful finished pieces to show what can be achieved.
