Light and water presents aesthetic, technical, and safety challenges to the ceramicists who want to combine these elements with the quality of porcelain. Margaret O’Rorke has produced a body of installations, sculptures, lighting fixtures, and fountains. In ‘Clay, Light, and Water’, O’Rorke shares her expertise in working with these fluid media. Beginning with a history of early oil lamps, it presents the nature of the basic materials required to fashion porcelain, bone china, and earthenware light holders. O’Rorke provides instructions for each stage of construction, including throwing, shaping, firing, and wiring. She addresses the importance of such factors as the source of clay and the space the finished piece will inhabit. Because building ceramic light holders and fountains involves electricity and moving water, O’Rorke pays special attention to safety precautions. She also gives advice on collaborating with electricians and other professionals. Instructions are paired with vivid photographs.
