Painted Clay: Graphic Arts and the Ceramic Surface. (Bookmarks).

Painted Clay: Graphic Arts and the Ceramic Surface. Paul Scott. New York: Watson-Guptill Publishers (800-451-1741), 2001. Illus., hardcover, 160 pp., $40.00.

This publication provides information and images about an area of ceramics that has received minimal attention. Scott explores the history and interrelationship between ceramics and the fine arts; he dismisses the singular focus of ceramics as only applied or decorative art. In presenting an alternative view of ceramic history, the author plots a painterly path. The text begins in seventeenth-century BC and finishes with an exploration of the twentieth century. The book contains numerous images with 100 color and 150 black-and-white illustrations. The techniques of slips, underglazes, low-fire decals, mono-prints, in-glaze screen prints, on-glaze enamels, and computer generated laser prints are shown and discussed. This book best suits advanced high school students to professional studio potters.
