Creative Pottery is Seattle potter Deb Schwartzkopf’s much anticipated book that starts by taking you on a journey with a quick review of where you are as a potter. Whether your background is wheel-throwing or hand building, you will find what you need to brush up on the basics and unlock your creativity. If you want help setting goals, or pointers on how to translate your inspiration into your work, you've come to the right place. Schwartzkopf also shares some of her signature techniques and provides resources so you can choose the projects that interest you. If you’re ready to go beyond the basics, you’ll learn about bisque molds, combining forms, and asymmetrical shapes.
