    Body adornment is one of the oldest art forms and throughout history, people all over the world have decorated their bodies in one way or another. In its earliest and most primitive forms, clay and earth pigments were smeared or painted on the body to adorn it and to create mystery or theatre during rituals. Beads made from a variety of materials were one of the simplest forms of jewelry, and were also used as currency, to confer status and to ward off bad spirits.  
    Joy Bosworth’s Ceramic Jewelry inspires anyone wishing to explore jewelry and body adornment using clay with or without other materials. By developing new skills with different materials it may be possible to further develop your work and broaden its scope.

    Invented in 9th century China, coveted in 17th century Europe, treasured in 19th century America, and neglected by art schools for more than 100 years, china painting is poised for a revival as new materials, new forms and new imagery appear. China paint—fired at the lowest end of the ceramic range—offers consistent, durable, predictable color, from the brightest hues to the subtlest gradations. Any effect that paint or ink can achieve, china paint can duplicate.  
    From the ceramic artist interested in exploring this robust medium to the lifelong china painter, China Paint & Overglaze is THE essential text. This groundbreaking book is the first to showcase the work of traditional china painters, contemporary potters and clay sculptors together, and includes many unique features on every aspect of an exciting and colorful medium.
