Our Recommended Books & DVD's

Recommended Books TrioWe recommend books and DVD's online to help you and your students discover the simple techniques and complexities of surface design and form. The world of fired arts is what we at AMACO/Brent want to bring to you, whether it's through our own products or through the work product of others. These books and DVD's feature many of the artists who have worked with us through the years to teach others how to ‘play in clay’. These resources are invaluable to the clay culture and education.
