traditional or religious significance and often serve as ties
with the natural or spirit worlds. Shirley Phipps not only relates
the interesting background and legends associated with various
types of Indian pottery, but will also direct you with detailed
instructions as you reproduce exquisitely-detailed ceramic pieces
in the style of Indian artists.
The many step-by-step projects in
this book are illustrated with beautiful color photographs. A
list of required materials accompanies each project and detailed
patterns and color keys are included when necessary.
This book is sure to be a valuable
learning tool and is one that should be in the library of every
hobby ceramist and of anyone who enjoys the beauty of Indian artifacts.
