Offering an extensive photographic explanation of Watkinss techniques, this book shows how the vessels are built, how various materials are used to create different surfaces, how clay slips are made from organic materials collected at the various sites Watkins often visits in Texas, and how both technology and serendipity are part of the firing process.<P>Describing the construction and the aesthetics of Watkinss pottery, the book also illustrates the influence of place and experience -- both externally and in dreams and memories.<P>Watkins is a professor in the Texas Tech University College of Architecture. His work has been included in the White House Collection of American Crafts exhibit and in the Smithsonian Institution.
