Br>A wealth of ideas and works from top ceramists who have taught at the prestigious Penland School of Crafts make this book an indispensable resource. These ten talented artists, well known and respected for the particular techniques they have mastered, demonstrate their methods in a series of instructive photographs. They also discuss their interest and affinity with different influences and methods, and present work by other artists whose work they admire. Stunning art, innovative techniques, and thoughtful personal essays illustrate the breadth of contemporary ceramic practice for both artists and collectors. Ten of the finest ceramists in the field-all of whom have taught at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina-here offer master classes in a clay technique for which they are well known. Photographs and insightful commentary capture the skilled, innovative, and sometimes surprising ways they work and think. Youll learn as much about their materials and processes as you do about their influences and aspirations. Clara "Kitty" Couch creates one of her signature large, coil-built terra cotta pots, showing how form and process mature together. Angelica Pozo makes tiles with her own template method, then shows how to build up a relief surface and add vitreous glaze painting to it. Michael Sherrill demonstrates techniques he uses to extrude and carve porcelain forms that become components of his ceramic sculpture. Tom Spleth illustrates mold making, from carving the original plaster form to building the molds to realizing a finished slip-cast porcelain assemblage. Linda Arbuckle demonstrated with her majolica brushwork technique how she marries functional form and decorative surface. Nick Joerling alters his wheel-thrown vessels with straightforward cutting and reshaping methods. Cynthia Bringle shares how she joins wheel-thrown sections to make very large vessels. Joe Bova creates a joined pair of realistic relief sculptures of human forms from clay slabs. Sergei Isopov builds a figurative slab sculpture, then demonstrates his techniques for detailed narrative underglaze illustration. Mary Barringer marks and unifies clay surfaces with rich slip and textural surface treatments on functional forms. Also, a gallery of complementary work from other artists provides additional inspiration. Content: Introduction by Jean W.

Like being in a studio workshop setting, through these pages readers are taken into the ceramics class of a fine school and given extensive, step-by-step lessons in basic and advanced molding techniques. After reviewing materials and tools needed for molding, the book's next four chapters present four different techniques: wasted mold (for models of clay, polyurethane, and other materials); press mold (for a tray, a tile, an animal, and other sculptural forms); casting mold (for a bottle, a teapot, and other modular forms); and terracotta mold (for a bowl and relief work). Included are practical tips for setting up a good work area in the home.

Physical Metallurgy and Advanced Materials is the latest edition of the classic book previously published as Modern Physical Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. Fully revised and expanded, this new edition is developed from its predecessor by including detailed coverage of the latest topics in metallurgy and material science. It emphasizes the science, production and applications of engineering materials and is suitable for all post-introductory materials science courses. This book provides coverage of new materials characterization techniques, including scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and nanoindentation. It also boasts an updated coverage of sports materials, biomaterials and nanomaterials. Other topics range from atoms and atomic arrangements to phase equilibria and structure; crystal defects; characterization and analysis of materials; and physical and mechanical properties of materials. The chapters also examine the properties of materials such as advanced alloys, ceramics, glass, polymers, plastics, and composites. The text is easy to navigate with contents split into logical groupings: fundamentals, metals and alloys, nonmetals, processing and applications. It includes detailed worked examples with real-world applications, along with a rich pedagogy comprised of extensive homework exercises, lecture slides and full online solutions manual (coming). Each chapter ends with a set of questions to enable readers to apply the scientific concepts presented, as well as to emphasize important material properties. Physical Metallurgy and Advanced Materials is intended for senior undergraduates and graduate students taking courses in metallurgy, materials science, physical metallurgy, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, physics, manufacturing engineering and related courses. Renowned coverage of metals and alloys, plus other materials classes including ceramics and polymers. Updated coverage of sports materials, biomaterials and nanomaterials. Covers new materials characterization techniques, including scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and nanoindentation.

Among all building materials, concrete is the most commonly used-and there is a staggering demand for it. However, as we strive to build taller structures with improved seismic resistance or durable pavement with an indefinite service life, we require materials with better performance than the conventional materials used today.
