Still a fairly new development in ceramics, paperclay is an extremely versatile material for the modern potter. In this book, ceramic artists will discover the world of possibilities offered by paperclay, along with examples of paperclay creations by contemporary potters.
Rosette Gault is an American studio potter and an acknowledged authority on paperclay. She has written a number of books and articles on the subject, and lectured and taught at universities and colleges around the world.
Even after working in the ceramics industry for many years I found many things in this book to be of interest and use. Throughout I found it to be both informative and very thorough in its approach. The use of paperclay as a sculptural medium is both advantageous and exciting. A very attractive book and one every serious ceramic practitioner should have on the bookshelf. -- Alan Parris, Co-Director Aylesford Pottery, Kent UK * Aylesford School of Ceramics Newsletter *
