The Essential Guide to Mold Making and Slip Casting (A Lark Ceramics Book)
The Essential Guide to Mold Making & Slip Casting (A Lark Ceramics Book)
by Andrew Martin
For potters, mold making is invaluable because it allows them to slip-cast identical multiples of their workóand this newly revised, now in color edition of Andrew Martinís classic is the definitive guide to the craft. No other volume has shown the processes in such how-to detail. Itís overflowing with hundreds of photos, key techniques, projects, master artist profiles, and troubleshooting tips. A thorough introduction addresses materials and tools, and presents Martinís simple, unique template method for making clay prototypes. Create easy one-piece molds to make tiles, bowls, and platters, or multi-piece molds for more complex forms. An extensive overview covers slip formulation, while offering highly desired slip recipes for low-, mid-, and high-fire clay bodies. This will be the standard reference in every ceramistís library.

The Complete Potter's Companion
by Tony Birks, et al
Revised and updated, this classic potter's volume explains everything from preparation through firing, with stops along the way for detailed coverage of working on the wheel; coiled, slab, and pinch pots; mold making; slip casting; and glazing and decorating. The comprehensive text ranges from basic (wedging and kneading, beginning wheelwork) to advanced (spray glazing, raku firing). The no-frills design of the book packs almost too much information on a page, but the instructions are clear and thorough, the photos (more than 450, all in color) are straightforward and helpful, and the stunning examples of work by contemporary potters provide additional inspiration.
