    Short Description Modern Tribal Tattoo Designs Irish, Lora S. 9781565233980
    Author Biography Lora Irish has more than 11 titles published with Fox Chapel, all of them top-sellers. In addition to her skills in pattern drafting, Lora enjoys teaching.
    Review I found both the Modern Tribal Tattoo and 101 Artistic Relief Patterns to be an inspiring collection of designs, for both within and beyond their intended medium. To be sure, there were a number of patterns particularly in Lora Irish's book that could easily be applied as a decorative element to the ceramic surface, whether brushed or carved! In fact, it would be lovely to see a book that describes the techniques of creating these designs in clay as well! Once more, all of us potters here at the Bamboushay studio were delighted to find fresh ideas for our surface decoration, especially from such an unexpected resource as tattoo and wood carving designs. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and would certainly be happy to share in the same way should have any further inquiries into the world of clay!
