Discover the world of possibilities offered by paperclay with basic and more advanced techniques. Now firmly established in the ceramics world, paperclay is a vital part of the modern clay artist and potter's repertoire. The workability of this material allows expressive freedom and imagination at every stage in the creative process, from wet to dry. Paperclay, made with new or recycled paper, is remarkable for its flexibility, unfired strength, and the ease with which it can be repaired, and allows the creation of beautiful finished forms. In this book, pioneering artist, researcher and teacher Rosette Gault (M.F.A.) explains how you can make, fire and use paperclay. In addition to the basics such as ingredients, mixing and slips, she introduces you to more advanced techniques for building armatures, sculpting figures and making works for the wall. Packed throughout with photographs of inspiring works by a new generation of paperclay artists, Paperclay is an essential introduction to the medium.

Recensioner i media

Even after working in the ceramics industry for many years I found many things in this book to be of interest and use. Throughout I found it to be both informative and very thorough in its approach. The use of paperclay as a sculptural medium is both advantageous and exciting. A very attractive book and one every serious ceramic practitioner should have on the bookshelf. -- Alan Parris, Co-Director Aylesford Pottery, Kent UK * Aylesford School of Ceramics Newsletter *
