Molds have been used since the dawn of ceramics beginning with making pots inside baskets. And with tile making, ceramic artists find the two-dimensional aspect of claywork challenging and create astonishing works with both traditional and nontraditional forming methods.Here is just a sampling of what you'll find:In Steve Howell: Creating Forms with Hump Molds author Harriet Gamble provides a detailed look at how Steve Howell creates his elegant, yet simple, forms and also reveals his technique for making the lightweight molds he uses.If you think an extruder is limited to the number of dies you can purchase, you'll be amazed at what can be done beyond the plain, round and square tubes or coils that are standard fare.

    "I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Whether used as a reference or a beautiful keepsake, it's a very worthy addition to the world of Mah Jongg." —Ruth Unger, President, National Mah Jongg LeagueThis is the first book to fully capture the story of the exotic and exciting game of Mahjong or "Mah Jongg," offering an intimate look at the history of the game as well as the visual beauty of the tiles. When authors Ann Israel and Gregg Swain began playing Mahjong, they were unaware of the vintage collections that existed not only in the United States but also across the globe. Slowly, they started to collect their own sets of Mahjong and as their collections grew, so did their appreciation of the history of, and interest in, the game.Finding few references, Israel and Swain set out to create a book that chronicles the early beginnings of the game and documents Mahjong sets from the most basic, made of paper, to the most precious materials such as ivory and mother-of-pearl. Recognized and respected scholars and game experts have collaborated with Israel and Swain, contributing essential chapters on the game's history and its pieces as well as technical information on the tiles. Lastly, prominent collectors from around the globe have shared their incredible sets and memories for the first ...
