He then describes preparing the clay for use, discusses reasons and techniques for adding temper and illustrates how to make pots using all techniques. Finishing and decorating the green pot are described and illustrated, followed by a detailed discussion of primitive firing techniques. Evard then tells how to cook a meal outdoors in a pot you have made yourself. A great book for anyone into primitive arts or survival skills.
