This is a handbook on how to introduce colour into clay, and various
methods of working with coloured clay. It briefly covers natural colour found
in clays and how to use this to best advantage. It thoroughly looks at colouring your
own clay through adding stains and oxides, and the various methods of
preparing clay and slips, as well as how to blend properly and repeat
results consistently. It looks at a range of making techniques using
coloured clays (with specific ceramic artists as examples), including
coiling and pinching with colours, marbling and agate, using moulds to
create neriage or millefiori, textural effects, inlaying, sprigging and
slipcasting. Each technique shows how various artists put it to use, with step by step sequences where needed, and displays
finished pieces for further inspiration.
