Clay: A Studio Handbook by Vince Pitelka

Originally published in 2001, Vince Pitelka’s Clay: A Studio Handbook has been an essential, all-inclusive studio text for students, studio artists, educators and all those interested in the art of clay for years. Now it is back fully updated, expanded, and better than ever with beautiful color images! Clay: A Studio Handbook addresses the full range of ceramic processes, and brings a lifetime of ceramic knowledge directly into the hands of potters. A thorough table of contents, glossary of ceramic terms and raw materials, and index make finding answers quick and convenient.

This is an excellent book covering ALL aspects of studio production. Especially valuable to me is the detailed technical information. It is also one of the few ceramics books available in digital format.
