Description: Anyone who has ever imagined plunging bare hands into cool, moist clay and shaping it into a vase, platter, or tile can now experience the pleasure of pottery. Lifelong potter Bill van Gilder has a bounty of time-tested advice on all the basics, and a plethora of fantastic techniques. That means novices will enjoy the advantages of a master teacher guiding them through each stage of the process-- while intermediates will eagerly soak up every new idea he has to offer. With van Gilder' s help, beginners can try hand building, and progress onto the fundamentals of wheel-throwing. They' ll get expert tips on shaping spouts, handles and feet; adding texture, color, and luster; and combining techniques to create a variety of attractive projects. A production potter for more than 30 years, Bill van Gilder, host of DIY Network' s "Throwing Clay," has traveled around the world to learn, teach, and exhibit his craft. He is a regular contributor to "Clay Times" magazine, and is on the faculty of The Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia. In 2000, he founded the Frederick Pottery School in Maryland.
