Linda Bloomfield – A new book, Advanced Pottery

Linda has written a new book, Advanced Pottery which was published by Robert Hale in January 2011 and is available to order from bookshops etc., and directly from Linda at £29, plus £2.75 p&p (www.lindabloomfield.co.uk)

Background:

I have now talked to Linda and you may be interested in the background to her writing the book:

The introduction to  came through London Potters via an email from Robert Hale, publishers asking if my husband knew anyone who might like to write a pottery book, so he suggested Linda.
She had 18 months to finish the book, 50,000 words and 600 images!. As she had just exhibited at Rufford and she started by contacting quite a few of the potters and asking for images of their work. All but a few very famous potters were willing to send images.
My husband, Henry, photographed pots from various collectors, and making sequences in various potters’ studios. The publishers wanted the book to be called Advanced Pottery as there are already so many beginners’ books around, so Linda included techniques such as throwing and coiling large jars (with images of Adam Buick), casting double-walled moulds (with Solomia Zoumaras), unusual ways of making teapots (with Jeremy Nichols and Ruthanne Tudball sequences) and decorating (with Doug Fitch slip decorating sequences) .
There are also chapters on tableware design, glazing, firing and a kiln building sequence (to Joe Finch’s design).
Linda enjoyed writing the book as it’s very different to making and her next book will be on ‘Colour in Glazes’ for A&C Black.
Description:
Advanced Pottery describes and illustrates the latest pottery techniques, particularly for making large or complex pots, with examples from leading potters from the UK and abroad. The book shows work from a cross-section of different studio potters and the materials, tools and methods they use. It focuses on advanced techniques, including throwing on the wheel, hand building, coiling, slabbing, making and using moulds and altering thrown work. Clays and glazes are explained in detail, highlighting the many different colours obtainable and giving recipes and methods for creating and modifying glazes. Firing techniques are also covered and instructions for building a fast-fire kiln are included. The book is intended as a practical guide to the latest techniques for potters, teachers, students and anyone interested in working with clay and glazes.
