"Throwing clay on a potter's wheel and the seemingly effortless and wonderful way that clay will swell and climb in the hands of a skilled potter is merely the beginning to this most 'natural' and ancient of crafts."--from Throwing Pots

Throwing is a skill that many potters seek to master. It requires patience, time, and lots of practice. In Throwing Pots , Phil Rogers takes the reader through the basic principles of throwing. With the help of step-by-step illustrations, he demonstrates how to make a wide range of pots, from the simple bowl to the more complex forms of teapots and jugs, including lids and spouts. Rogers also discusses the aesthetics of pottery, encouraging readers to assess design and develop a personal style as well as recommending places to see examples of fine quality handthrown pottery.
