I am really excited to introduce one of our Spring 2015 titles, Graphic Clay (March 2015) by author Jason Burnett. As many know, once a clay piece is finished, an artist must then decide how the vessel will be decorated. Should it be stamped or silk screened, or is sgraffito or decals better?
Jason tackles each of the many types of various image transfer techniques for clay and guides ceramists on how to develop their own aesthetics through interviews and galleries from some of today’s well-known ceramists. After an introduction covering the basic tools and materials, dedicated chapters detail the different clay surface processes within slip, drawing, bisque, decal, printing applications, stencils, and screen-printing applications. In addition to introducing readers to the many graphic processes, Jason offers ideas and exercises to encourage development and creative vision for all types of graphic clay decorations.
