Author: Wade Marsh



Your Go-To Beginner Guide In The Art of Making Pottery Crafts

Pottery is a huge theme that revolves around a naturally derived organic matter called clay. It is one craft that has served many purposes, from the formation of earthen vessels to the very ceramic plates, cups and pots used in our homes and so much more. Pottery began right when the early men dominated the world, and since then, several techniques and processes have been introduced into the art, making it much more fun and seamless than before.

At first, being a potter might be a walk in the park, but studies reveal that nine out of every ten pottery crafts made ended up collapsing. Sometimes, the structures become too thin and then crumble. Other times, the walls could have absorbed more moisture than necessary, resulting in weak walls. Another prevalent issue is the pottery being unable to serve the function for which it was created. So, it ends up becoming more of an ornate piece.

That is why this book, Pottery Book for Beginners, was written to provide you with top-level information to ensure your pottery craft comes out just as intended.
