Today, you don't have to be an expert printmaker to apply typography, lettering, drawings, or photographs to clay. Decal papers, light-sensitive emulsions, ceramic inks, and laser printing enable you to easily transfer images. What's more, using the latest computer software, you can create, copy, re-size, and change graphics in ways never before possible. Expand your horizons with this idea-packed guide, and you'll find that the creative possibilities are unlimited.

Make images on reusable stencils, silk-screens, and relief blocks; use overglazes, underglazes, engobes, and colored slips to craft unique monoprints; or create decals from ceramics inks or laser prints. Photographs and detailed firing instructions show you how to complete each technique.

Several wall pieces by author Paul Andrew Wandless demonstrate his plaster slab transfer method, while Christina Antemann's nudes and Richard Brukett's "Feast and Famine Platter" use decals on slip-cast porcelain. Janice Kluge's "One Hundred Hands" utilizes rubber stamping, Meryl H. Ruth's "Pillow Purse" has a paisley pattern applied directly by stencil, and Joseph Pintz's work features advertising images on press-molded earthenware.

You'll find a wealth of inspiration in works by these artists and many others—more than 100 examples in all.
