Making Pots by Stefan Andersson helps you learn the ancient craft of making artisan pots, from clay preparation and drying to glazing and firing. You don’t need much to make your first pot, just a piece of clay and an idea. At the same time, it’s a craft one develops over a lifetime. Making Pots is a handbook both for the beginner and more experienced potter.

 

Basic skills are taught along with a background explanation of the rich history of pottery. Step-by-step the potter, Stefan Andersson, guides us on the potter’s wheel, glaze manufacture and firing, sharing his techniques and know-how. Stefan also describes how to set up your own workshop, make your own tools, and design, stone-by-stone, your own kiln. What happens if there’s a pocket of air in your clay? If the potter’s wheel slips when you centre the clay? Or if the pots fall apart as you decorate the slipware? For each section there are also solutions to common problems.

 

The book is founded on Stefan’s enterprise and production of wood-fired ceramics with photos and diagrams describing the tasks and techniques.
