by Bill van Gilder

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.

Great book with fantastic pictures and directions. Well worth the price!
This is a perfect book for potters of all skill levels. It is beautifully illustrated and well written. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in pottery making!
I teach pottery. Bill's book is an excellent how-to type book as well as a valuable teaching tool for beginning potters. I'm anxiously awaiting the next volume as well as a DVD set (hint hint) that extend Van Gilder's popular DIY network series on throwing clay. I highly recommend this book for all potters!
Great book and my wife uses it as a reference source for ideas and techniques. After checking t out several times in the library, we had to buy it. It is a must have.
This book is excellent for a new potter. The project tutorials are very informative and written to be understood with ease. The accompanying pictures help illistrate every step of the way.
Excellent book -- perfect for the wheel-throwing class I teach (intermediate to advanced level). Lots of challenging projects in the book with great, detailed photos and explanation of the steps.
Nice step by step instructions for any level potter with great photos and step by step instructions on several projects.
This book is great. Not only do you get step by step help on making a project, but you also get fun ideas.
