With 22 colourful projects to make, there are decorative plates, bowls, cups and pots, vases, a lamp and even earrings and a necklace. With simple techniques to follow, all explained in clear and simple terms, you just need a few brushes, some ceramic paints and some plain pottery and away you go! If you love painted ceramics, patterns and making little gifts this book is for you!
