book recommendation for jimena

The book I love best is "The Craft of the Potter" by Michael Casson. I
learned a LOT from his step by step photos. I learned to make a t-pot from
this book.

My t-pots look entirely different now - but it was this book that made it
"simple" by showing me and telling me; what to do.

best wishes on your new journey into clay
