Müller, a ceramic artist since 1987 and the education director for Brookfield Craft Center in Brookfield, CT, offers a splendid book on a timeless art. She guides beginners through advanced students in equipping a ceramic studio, handling the design, preparing the clay, constructing slab projects, throwing on a wheel, glazing, and firing. The 16 clay projects featured here include teapots, vases, and dinner plates. Readers can draw inspiration from the creative painting and underglazing examples, as well as the unusual firing techniques for color and texture. Highly recommended, though professional potters will want advanced works like Irene Poulton’s Fired Up with Raku: Over 300 Recipes. -Library Journal, March 2008

As an intermediate potter, I found this book frustrating. For the beginning potter, there are better books out there....
It has a great glossary of vocabulary words. Very clear and helpful suggestions and tips.
