Authored by Ana João Almeida and published by Convent WorkshopsThis book is a comprehensive manual on ceramics, from its origins to firing, covering forming, coating and decoration techniques.

"The aim of this manual is to explain what clay is, its processes and its modification by human action. It approaches this technology in its natural form, understanding and teaching the extent of the resources that nature offers us. Clay is an abundant raw material, it is in the soil and can be easily collected, worked and fired. Knowing this material and having autonomy in this process brings us closer to nature, where everything is transformed, while allowing for a creative exercise that can contribute to our personal development."
