The teapot book / by Woodhead, Steve.;
Theory and design -- Making the classic teapot -- Artistic development -- Contemporary potters' profiles -- Teapot gallery."The Teapot Book offers both a practical and an aesthetic approach to the teapot. The first half of the book covers the theory, design and practical aspects of making a teapot in depth, using a step-by-step approach to show the throwing of spouts, bodies, handles and lids. In the second half, the chapters shift focus to explore the use of sketchbooks and design development, and then to profile some twenty-five potters from around the world, showcasing their work and explaining their approach and making methods." "This book, illustrated with hundreds of images and also highly practical, will be an invaluable resource for students, professional potters, teapot collectors and all fans of the teapot."--Book jacket.
