From pinch pots to coiled boxes to soft slab tableware, mastering hand building is a lifelong pursuit. In Mastering Hand Building, Sunshine Cobb covers all the foundational skills, with lessons for constructing both simple and complex forms.

You'll also find a variety of next-level techniques and tips: designing templates and replicating pieces, lidded vessels, using molds, a variety of decorative techniques, and other avenues of exploration are all inside. Artist features and inspirational galleries include work from today's top working artists, such as Bryan Hopkins, Lindsay Oesterritter, Liz Zlot Summerfield, Bandana Pottery, Shoko Teruyama, Courtney Martin, Sam Chung, Deborah Schwartzkopf, and many more.
