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 clarify each concept and method.  This book ends with inspiring profiles of some of today's best potters.
