"As clothes are to the human body so are glazes to pots." Bernard Leach A Potter's Book
This book beautifully collaborates four genres of ceramics: clay with surface pigment, clay marked by fire, pure clay, and clay with additions. Highlighting the 'love affair' between the ceramicist and the clay, Naked Clay offers the reader an insight to other distinguished potters, their studios and techniques, and impressive illustrations displaying their unique artwork.
This book is an inspiration to students, professionals and aspiring potters alike, or those with any interest in modern ceramics. The author of Smoke-fired Pottery (1995) and Traditional Pottery of India (2000), well known potter Jane Perryman combines studio work, and her writing, which includes numerous international publications. Specialising in handbuilding and smoke firing, she runs summer workshops from her studio in rural Suffolk.
