Very often, we cannot fully control what comes to life on the wheel. Many times, the clay will tell us what it should be, how it should form. We are partners in the process, not the masters. We must incorporate our vision of what the clay can become with what it wants to be. We hear its music, and when we're lucky, we can bring that music to life in form, shape, and sound.The primal voice of ancient civilizations lies within its musical instruments. All we need do to unlock a link to the past is draw breath, draw back a bow, raise a mallet or a hand and the sounds of the past come rushing across the great span of history, spilling into our consciousness. It is truly a remarkable experience to hear the sound of ancient instruments that last sounded thousands of years ago. The people may be gone, the civilization shattered for whatever reason. But we can travel back in time, hear the sounds they heard, by listening to (or even playing!) musical instruments of their time.Few of us will ever have the honor of playing an authentic instrument from an ancient culture. But we can explore our connection to cultures of ancient ages, hear the music of their time played on instruments of our own making instruments made from the very same material: clay.

I don't often write reviews, but I have to for this book. I have been doing ceramics for the last 4 years, and have recently built my own studio, following this craft from hobby to passion. While browsing for projects to do with kids, I hit upon an ocarina project in Ceramic Arts Daily, and it said it was taken from this book. Although I knew you could make instruments from clay, I had never explored that idea now that I work with clay myself. I made a few ocarinas, but I wanted to learn more. The library system here (which is wonderful and extensive) did not have a copy of this book, so I bit the bullet and bought it online. It's expensive, although art books are generally expensive - but worth every penny. Beautiful pictures, inspiring stories, and a CD that will amaze you! This is not primarily a "how-to" book, although there are several projects in the back, including the ocarina project, an extruded flute, and a drum. I had some kids over to make ceramic shakers in my studio, and I put on the CD for them so that they could hear the variety of instruments that can be made from clay - they loved it. Highly recommended...

Absolutely love this book! Definitely worth the purchase. Clear and concise directions, great examples and color images are outstanding! The CD is perfect to listen to while creating whistles, soft and melodic sounds. I use for myself and as a teacher I bring it to school and share with my students ...it is truly inspiring! And because the layout and images are so amazing it make for a great coffee table addition ... a real conversation piece.

If you're looking for an art piece, this is the book for you. I was hoping for a little more instruction. It is a beautiful book and I would probably buy it anyway even if I had known how little practical knowledge is actually offered. Most of the instruments could probably be figured out by a fairly competent ceramist, but a beginner would be completely lost.

I was disappointed not to be given cross-section diagrams of some of the wind instruments; I would have liked some more and more specific technical info on creating a clay xylophone and/or marimba; I'd like to know more about stretching drum heads and stringing/playing the bowed instruments and harps. That said, I can probably figure it out, but that's why I bought this book. To help me figure it out.

Conversely, in the section in which Hall does give step by step procedures, he includes simple steps that even the 6-year-olds in my pottery classes know how to do. Nothing about firing techniques or the rest of the stuff ceramists seem to feel obligated to include in a book written for beginners, though, for which I am grateful. Any beginning potter needs a general instruction text (or a good class), so I'm not sure why specialty authors feel it necessary to include basic steps and then, for want of space, leave out stuff you'd really like to know.

Sorry for whining so much. I really love the book and have been reading it word for word (some of it is pretty silly kind of psycho-babble, so you've been warned) to glean every bit of info. It's spangled with little stars of knowledge and I don't want to miss any of them.

As others have said, this isn't really a studio book. It's too nice, and hasn't got all that much practical information anyway, unless you've never made an ocarina or can't figure out on your own how to make a goblet drum. (Thanks for the instructions on fitting the head, though.) It will give you loads of inspiration, and if you understand the different ways of making a sound, which are really explained quite adequately, you'll be able to figure out at least a rudimentary model of most of the instruments shown.

From Mud to Music is a very well written and illustrated book. If you're interest in starting to make ceramic musical instrument or if you already know how to make a few instruments and want to expand your knowledge, you should get this book. This is possibly one of the most useful ceramics book I've bought in a long time.

Wonderful book on a unique subject: gives enough instructional material to start your own as well as full of color and sound (CD) inspiration.

This book is truly amazing! It's also pretty comprehensive, covering a range of instruments. Just about any instrument can be made using clay, though there are some limiting factors, such as the material's rigidity once fired. The book also covers a history of various instruments, as well as including instructions on how to make a number of them. I especially enjoyed listening to the accompanying CD.

Full of great project ideas!! My new favorite book!!
