The Potter's Tale, is a story of one man's journey of discovery and self discovery on one of the most beautiful islands on the Hebrides - Colonsay. Dion Alexander was 'the Colonsay Potter' through the 1970s and his own story is interwoven with that of some of the legendary characters of the islands in that period, one of the last in which Gaelic came naturally to the community. It is also the story of beginning to think about how to keep a small remote community dominated by a landed estate alive and viable in the face of modern pressures. The Colonsay of the 1970s had no electricity or affordable housing and an erratic ferry service. The book is an autobiography, a reflection of a world still close in time but in some ways very distant interwoven with much of history, tradition and folklore, and a moving account of the trials, triumphs and tribulations of a small community. Above all it is woven with a deep love of the magical place that is Colonsay.
Neither of us, at that point in time, had a clue, though it wasn't too long ... finding a cottage to live in, setting up a studio pottery and, I trusted, ...

Like blacksmithing or hobby farming, pottery-making appeals to individuals who like to be creative, work with their hands, and donÆt mind getting a little dirty. However, it is a hobby that is largely underserved by the publishing industry, but difficult for someone to learn without a comprehensive guide because the tools and techniques are quite complicated. The PotterÆs Studio Handbook guides readers through the process of setting up their own studio and teaching them how to master the techniques at home. Once techniques are mastered, The PotterÆs Studio Handbook will remain an invaluable resource to the clay artist when looking to create beautiful, yet functional projects, at home with nearly 25 projects that build upon previously learned skills. Teaches the three most popular techniques: wheel throwing, hand building, and slipcasting Teaches readers how to make many functional and beautiful projects at home Step-by-step photos guarantee success

In the 1950’s and 60’s, Kansas farm life meant milking cows, gathering eggs, and butchering hogs and steers. It meant raising a garden, preparing meals from scratch, sewing clothes, and churning butter. It meant living close to the earth. It was a special time when children could wander the pastures and fields without fear and come home dirty after a day of hard play and harder work. Farmers produced much of what they needed to live, and were almost completely self-sufficient. Farm life was basic, simple and sweet, and family was the most important thing. There’s No Place Like Home is the story of a Kansas farm family. It is the unique story of life in a different time and place, before technology and automation changed how things are done on the farm. It was a time when a farm life was a family project, and everyone contributed. A collection of anecdotes and oral histories, this story includes the tales of a childhood on a Kansas farm in the mid 20th century, and the joys and regrets for generations of such a life. It is the story of a life on the Kansas prairie, a celebration of the land and people of Kansas and a re-telling of the histories of one family, recounted around the kitchen table. It tells of the struggles, hopes and disappointments of life in a simpler time and place.

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.

The sensuous is the human experience, unfolding our everyday experiences and articulating our affects. Without sensory information, we could neither know nor be. This is because we gain information through our senses and interpret that information as perceptions, the sociocultural frames used to analyze that input. This is the case regardless of how a sensorium is constructed, a more limited Western five senses model for example. It is also the case no matter how senses are defined, they ways they are expressed, or the ways in which they are understood to function. Further, because there are often greater differences between members within a particular group than divergences between groups, how one attends to and acts in light of sensory information is always a polyphonic tapestry constructed on the warp of the sociocultural and the weft of individualism. Education, the transfer of information between people, animals, things, and ecologies, is therefore a sensory endeavor. Sensuous curriculum is one means of describing this deeply layered intersection of educational ways of being and knowing. In many ways inverting how questions of curriculum are often framed, Sensuous Curriculum: Politics and the Senses in Education foregrounds how sensory understandings are forms of educational, relational politics. Bringing the depth and complexity of sensory studies firmly into curriculum and foundational studies of education, contributors to this volume address this educational and political intersection from a wide variety of theoretical and practical perspectives that are always embodied and material. Approached in an academic yet accessible manner, Sensuous Curriculum addresses key questions about what it means to educate and the ideas and ideals render those understandings sensible. This variety, depth, and accessibility combine to make Sensuous Curriculum an important resource for those interested in critical studies of the senses in educational ecologies and holistic education. It is a text as at home in theory and methods doctoral courses as it is in undergraduate courses for preservice teachers and will be of interest to those searching for rich ways to conceptualize education outside of a standards-centric perspective. Praise for Sensuous Curriculum: "This collection engages and challenges readers to think more deeply about questions of curriculum in connection to the sensuous in ways not typically considered, existing multi-dimensionally in transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and cross- disciplinary work. This compelling, intellectually stimulating, exhilarating volume is a canonical contribution everyone must study." Theodorea Regina Berry Professor and Chair, African American Studies College of Social Sciences, San Jose State University "Dr. Gershon’s edited collection, Sensuous Curriculum: Politics and the Senses in Education, makes the case for corrective action. By exploring the sensory as human experience, curriculum, and political, the authors of this volume offer iterations and variations for interrupting the ignor(anc)es of the sensorium in education and the body in making sense." M. Francyne Huckaby Associate Dean, TCU School of Interdisciplinary Studies Professor, Curriculum Studies, TCU College of Education & Center for Public Education "I thoroughly enjoyed sensing this book. This collection defies the conventional popular trends that sit inside the classic curriculum vinyl on our bookshelves. And in Aokian fashion, Walter Gershon has successfully brought together an ensemble of curriculum scholars who dare us to improvise and replay the possibilities and limitations of educational research as a tantalization of our senses. The research put forth in this collection not only promises to the break barriers of our thinking, but also makes significant contributions to and beyond post-humanism, new materialism, curriculum and affect theory. All serious scholars—artists, teacher educators, teachers, graduate students, community activists—of curriculum studies will want to purchase a copy of this carefully, crafted, curated sensuous collection. Without reservation...put the needle on their record, cause I am one of their biggest fans." Nicholas Ng-A-Fook Professor, Director of Teacher Education, Indigenous Teacher Education Co-Director of the Réseau de Savoir sur l’Equité/Equity Knowledge Network Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa
