Good Day to All ,

Antoinette ,

This book - Ceramics for the Potter - F.H.Norton
was very informative [ pretty old 1956 ] , and has
a good chapter on the basic stuff -
Chapter 14 - Application of Design Theory to Pottery .
Actually just a good book to read and study .

Just looking and drawing from Iznik , Sung , Attic Ware
and so on would also help . See also nature , for shapes
like gourds , tendrils , leaves etc.
Best of Luck ,
