This book is about a truly remarkable transformation: how the simplest of materials—clay or mud—can be used to make tools for producing one of the most complex human expressions—music.

With a history reaching back to ancient times, creating ceramic musical instruments is a vibrant pursuit for many innovative artists today.  This book explores the vast array of ceramic musical instruments, from their historical traditions in world cultures to their modern variations and innovations.

All instrument families are represented: percussion, winds, strings, and even unique hybrids.  For each type of instrument, special construction techniques specific to clay are explained.  In addition, there's a chapter providing detailed, step-by-step instructions showing how to build several ceramic instruments.
