A Practical Approach to Form and Design
Author: David Cohen
Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press
Category: Crafts & Hobbies
To master the timeless craft of clay wheel throwing, a ceramicist must understand more than the attributes of clay and the operation of the potter's wheel. Successful practitioners learn to combine technical knowledge and physical skill with emotional control and a highly developed aesthetic sense. The learning process can be extremely frustrating for beginners, but thorough background information and a proper mindset can ease the journey to technical proficiency and self-expression. The Basics of Throwing offers the kind of detailed instruction that is critical to the sustained practice of clay wheel throwing. In this thoroughly illustrated book, master potter David Cohen explores the essential aspects of the craft--the preparation of clay, the required tools, the mechanics governing the potter's wheel, the technical vocabulary, and the fundamental thrown forms of ceramic ware. In addition, Cohen shares insights into the value of related details, such as posture, breath, rhythm, and drawing, in the creation of quality clay ware. His clear writing links the physical relationship between body, clay, and wheel to the principles of beauty. Full-color photographs further clarify each concept and method. The Basics of Throwing ends with inspiring profiles of some of today's best potters. David Cohen's comprehensive instruction and holistic framework make The Basics of Throwing a unique resource for potters and ceramics educators.
From the Basics to the Practice of Design, Second Edition
Author: Malcolm Grear
Publisher: New Riders
Renowned artist and design legend Malcolm Grear has permanently shaped the design world with his work, lecturing, writing and teaching. Grear approaches design by looking at the inner parts of an object, process, or idea in order to understand the whole. He believes that form and structure are the underpinnings of effective design, which stands contrary to the reductive approach taught in most modern design education. Deftly and sparingly capturing the essence of his subject matter, Grear offers unique insight into the design process with images and forms drawn from nature, typography, art and design. These examples from both his teaching (inside) and professional practice (outside) begin with design problems and illuminate the processes by which the best solutions are found. Grear skillfully bridges the gap between design theory and real-world practice. Malcolm Grear has played a vital role as designer and educator in the field of visual communication for 48 years. Malcolm Grear Designers was founded in 1960 and has had more than 28 solo exhibitions in museums and galleries. He taught in Rhode Island School of Design from 1960 to 1998 where he received the Honorary Alumnus Award for "...professional achievements as an internationally acclaimed graphic designer (that) brought overwhelming recognition to Rhode Island School of Design's Department of Graphic Design and its graduates." Malcolm Grear has been awarded five honorary doctorate degrees and was selected by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design, comprising 190 institutions, to receive the Citation for Distinguished Service in the Visual Arts. Grear continues to design, lecture, and conduct design workshops throughout the country and will occasionally teach a graduate design course. Visit www.mgrear.com for more information. Inside / Outside is an AIGA Design Press book, published under Peachpit's New Riders imprint in partnership with AIGA.
