Many of these techniques can be applied to polymer and precious metal clays. The book lists all the equipment you will find useful and points out when you can borrow, do without, or substitute for them.

Fully illustrated projects take you through the stages of making many different sorts of beads. It includes a taxonomy to help you come up with new approaches to beadmaking. To give you further ideas, there are interviews with four ceramic beadmakers plus details of how to make their signature beads.Once youve made your beads, Raku Beads shows you the next step of turning them into necklaces and designing your own wearable art.

The book teaches all you need to know to make your own clasps, earrings, and various ways of suspending and linking beads together. But no book on ceramics should fail to let you know what can go wrong. Raku is to some extent an unpredictable art - this is its joy and its sometimes infuriating aspect. Raku Beads reveals what can go wrong with ceramics and how to mend it, not do it again, or use it to your own creative ends.There are over 250 pages with more than 530 color photos on making Raku beads.

Appendices cover detail on clays and glazes for those who want to know more.
