Review:

"This book is like the best of Sunshine’s pots: a marvel of construction that balances flashy tricks with soulful surprises. The jewels of hard-won knowledge within are piquant, and will linger in your head (and hands) for a long time." -- Garth Johnson, Curator of Ceramics, ASU Art Museum Ceramics Research Center Published On: 2018-01-05

"Anyone who has been lucky enough to take a class with Sunshine will instantly recognize her generosity, humor, and expertise in this book. For all others, it will introduce you to Sunshine’s big heart and organized mind, her sense of form and color, and the joy she finds in making everyday pots. Keep this book close at hand—if you’re using it correctly it should be covered in fingerprints and glaze splatter in no time." -- Leslie Noell, Director of Programs, Penland School of Crafts Published On: 2018-01-05

"Sunshine shares her years of experience working with various hand building techniques to create architectural forms with a strong sense of identity in such an enthusiastic and approachable way that I found myself thinking that she was in the same room with me, sharing her processes, answering anticipated questions, and offering advice." -- Jessica Knapp, Editor, Ceramics Monthly Published On: 2018-01-05

"A must-have book for any potter or teacher, Mastering Hand Building makes me want to be in my studio . . . making pots!" -- Bill Griffith, Administrator/Educator and Potter, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts Published On: 2018-01-05

"For a no-nonsense approach to hand building and vessel construction in clay, look no further. As only she can, Sunshine offers generous and straightforward information for the beginning to advanced artist and thoughtful interviews with many talented artists in our field." -- Steven Young Lee, Director, Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts Published On: 2018-01-05

"Sunshine Cobb has established a remarkable reputation for quirky, colorful, and thoroughly contemporary pottery. Her new book is just as remarkable. With an engaging combination of technical mastery and philosophical insight, the author’s ebullient personality fairly oozes from the seams of this terrific new studio handbook." -- John Neely, Potter and Professor, Utah State University Published On: 2018-01-05
