Using fibers with clay is not a new idea, but using fibers absorbed within the structure of the clay body is a concept that has recently, and rapidly, taken root among potters. Paperclay is now widely recognized as a material which allows great freedom of expression, relieving the maker of many of the technical problems associated with conventional clays. With lavish illustrations throughout, Working with Paperclay and Other Additives provides the expertise to inspire potters to discover this exciting material and, for those already smitten, to try new techniques and ideas by drawing on the examples and experiences from different artists.

Now firmly established in the ceramics world, paperclay is a vital part of the modern clay artist and potter's repertoire. The workability of this material allows expressive freedom and imagination at every stage in the creative process, from wet to dry. Paperclay, made with new or recycled paper, is remarkable for its flexibility, unfired strength, and the ease with which it can be repaired, and allows the creation of beautiful finished forms. Building on the immense success of her previous Ceramics Handbook Paper Clay, pioneering artist, researcher and teacher Rosette Gault (M.F.A.) explains how potters and clay sculptors can make, fire and use the material. In addition to the basics, she introduces more advanced techniques for building armatures, sculpting figures and making works for the wall. Packed throughout with photographs of inspiring works by a new generation of paperclay artists, Paperclay: Art and Practice is an essential introduction to the medium.
