Long Description

A teapot is one of the most important ceramic forms; the ability to make one is a key test of a potter's skill. Its construction requires the mastery of many techniques, whether the piece is thrown or handbuilt. From clay forming to aesthetics, function to design, and practicality to ergonomics, the exercise of building a teapot poses a broad range of challenges for the artist. However, the very limitations of the form are what allow for immense creativity and innovation.

This richly illustrated volume discusses the theory and design of the teapot as well as the numerous techniques for construction. For the beginning potter and the experienced teapot builder alike, The Teapot Book provides a useful step-by-step guide through the entire process of building a teapot, including materials, handle and spout placement, and kiln temperatures. The myriad illustrations also provide fodder for artists in need of new inspirations. There is a section devoted to contemporary potters and their galleries of teapots that will appeal to armchair enthusiasts, devoted collectors, and masters of the form.

From the history of teapots to theories of their construction, from suggestions for their firing to instructions for making a proper pot of tea (warm your pot first!), The Teapot Book contains all the components that today's potters need to tackle this critical piece of their artistic development. This invaluable reference will be of interest to collectors and artists, and its lavish production will tempt beginning potters to approach this rite of passage for ceramicists.

The "Quit Application" menu item wasn't working so that got fixed. On the scan results screen, the quit menu item was only returning you to the startup screen. Now it actually quits. We also changed the label for that menu item from "Quit / Exit" to "Quit Application" to be more clear.

We added the ability to "Share" scanned data. If you can something and we can bring you to a product page, when you share you will be sharing a link to the product page. When you scan something and we don't know what to do with it (not a product barcode) we let you share the raw scan.
