Br>A wealth of ideas and works from top ceramists who have taught at the prestigious Penland School of Crafts make this book an indispensable resource. These ten talented artists, well known and respected for the particular techniques they have mastered, demonstrate their methods in a series of instructive photographs. They also discuss their interest and affinity with different influences and methods, and present work by other artists whose work they admire. Stunning art, innovative techniques, and thoughtful personal essays illustrate the breadth of contemporary ceramic practice for both artists and collectors. Ten of the finest ceramists in the field-all of whom have taught at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina-here offer master classes in a clay technique for which they are well known. Photographs and insightful commentary capture the skilled, innovative, and sometimes surprising ways they work and think. Youll learn as much about their materials and processes as you do about their influences and aspirations. Clara "Kitty" Couch creates one of her signature large, coil-built terra cotta pots, showing how form and process mature together. Angelica Pozo makes tiles with her own template method, then shows how to build up a relief surface and add vitreous glaze painting to it. Michael Sherrill demonstrates techniques he uses to extrude and carve porcelain forms that become components of his ceramic sculpture. Tom Spleth illustrates mold making, from carving the original plaster form to building the molds to realizing a finished slip-cast porcelain assemblage. Linda Arbuckle demonstrated with her majolica brushwork technique how she marries functional form and decorative surface. Nick Joerling alters his wheel-thrown vessels with straightforward cutting and reshaping methods. Cynthia Bringle shares how she joins wheel-thrown sections to make very large vessels. Joe Bova creates a joined pair of realistic relief sculptures of human forms from clay slabs. Sergei Isopov builds a figurative slab sculpture, then demonstrates his techniques for detailed narrative underglaze illustration. Mary Barringer marks and unifies clay surfaces with rich slip and textural surface treatments on functional forms. Also, a gallery of complementary work from other artists provides additional inspiration. Content: Introduction by Jean W.

Abandoned lots and litter-strewn pathways, or rows of green beans and pockets of wildflowers? Graffiti-marked walls and desolate bus stops, or shady refuges and comfortable seating? What transforms a dingy, inhospitable area into a dynamic gathering place? How do individuals take back their neighborhood? Neighborhoods decline when the people who live there lose their connection and no longer feel part of their community. Recapturing that sense of belonging and pride of place can be as simple as planting a civic garden or placing some benches in a park. The Great Neighborhood Book explains how most struggling communities can be revived, not by vast infusions of cash, not by government, but by the people who live there. The author addresses such challenges as traffic control, crime, comfort and safety, and developing economic vitality. Using a technique called “placemaking”—the process of transforming public space—this exciting guide offers inspiring real-life examples that show the magic that happens when individuals take small steps and motivate others to make change. This book will motivate not only neighborhood activists and concerned citizens but also urban planners, developers, and policymakers. Jay Walljasper is a senior fellow of Project for Public Spaces (PPS), whose mission is to create and sustain enriching public places that build communities. He is a former editor of The Utne Reader and currently executive editor of Ode magazine. Inspired by European cities, The Great Neighborhood Book highlights practical solutions for the revitalization of North American cities.

"The importance of Ernest Batchelder as an Arts and Crafts tilemaker cannot be overstated. For his innovation in design, his entrepreneurial spirit, his living his life true to the principles that he espoused, he is a man to be admired by all generations." (Joseph A. Taylor, Tile Heritage Foundation) Ernest Batchelder's ceramic tilemaking enterprise began as a modest backyard venture in rural Pasadena, California but quickly grew to national prominence. In 1908 this enterprising young man left a prestigious teaching position to start his own school and factory, with the goal of establishing a West Coast guild of craftspeople. By 1930 the Batchelder-Wilson Company had showrooms in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, as well as representation in virtually every major city inthe United States. New York, Minneapolis, and Vancouver hosted major Batchelder architectural ceramic installations. Batchelder remained the preeminent leader of handmade tiles in the West until the Depression forced the closure of his operations in 1932. His clients ranged from restaurants to churches to high rise office buildings, although perhaps the most striking installations remain the many fireplaces gracing modest American bungalows throughout the country.
