Drawn in large part from vases and fragments in the collection of the Getty Museum, the many photographs that accompany the text show how much even seemingly insignificant sherds may reveal about technique when studied by someone knowledgeable about potting. The drawings - all done by the author - demonstrate step by step with admirable clarity how the potter executed his craft." "Written by a master potter, this is a book both for those who know little or nothing about potting techniques and for those who already have an understanding of these matters."--BOOK JACKET."
