Specification

The Potter's Craft by Charles F. Binns is the outcome of an experience extending over a period of 36 years. The author has endeavored to set down the exact methods by which his students are taught, in the hope that those who cannot secure personal instruction may read and understand.

A study of some new materials and new methods has been added to the 3rd edition of this classic textbook, originally published in 1947.

Charles Fergus Binns (1857 - 1935) was an English-born studio potter. His students included Maija Grotell, Arthur Eugene Baggs, and R. Guy Cowan. He has been called "the father of American studio ceramics". -- Excerpt from Wikipedia
