104 pages, illustrated with photographs throughout, depicting the artist at work and more than 50 finished pieces. Tracy Ameen’s work is important—a national treasure. She produces two particular types of pottery: sculpted single-wall pots and double-wall, reticulated pieces. She creates the double-wall pottery by throwing two pots simultaneously, one inside the other, both pots touching only at the bottom and the top. Double-wall pottery is so rare and requires such super-human skill that the Chinese labeled it “the devil’s work.” The technique dates to the Ming Dynasty, 1368-1644, and is sometimes referred to as “Ling-Lung Ware.” Each piece takes at least three months to complete, in part due to the lengthy time required for drying. Ms. Ameen has perfected her artistry over the course of several decades, and delights in sharing her work
