“For those of us who learn best with a combo of text and demonstrations, Simon Leach’s new book is the perfect fit.”
— Ceramics Monthly
“Third-generation potter Leach, with technical and photographic assistance from Bruce Dehnert and Jared Flood, capitalizes on his celebrity with an amazingly detailed, step-by-step text for all major processes in ceramics. The in-depth perspective starts with his directions for making simple tools (a wire tool and a sponge stick) and is bolstered by charts and information-packed sidebars (e.g., for removing air bubbles and troubleshooting your first pull). Every topic that novices must master is covered, such as working basic shapes (cylinder and variations dishes) trimming, decorating and glazing, and firing.” — Booklist
“A definitive guide for every step of pottery making.” — Publishers Weekly
