Summary
A feast for the eyes, this inspiring gallery of beautiful and remarkable ceramic pieces includes work from a broad range of exceptional contemporary ceramic artists, each of whom offers an inside look at their glazing process, including their special recipes and the techniques for using them. The book is organized by temperature range, with special firing techniques for salt and wood, and sub-categorized by method of application, so the potter can easily find work that relates to his or her own practice, or simply discover other creative approaches. With a section that focuses on the conceptual aspects of glaze as colour and how to harness colour in your work, a technical how-to section, and a detailed glossary, this book brings together a vast range of skills, techniques and technical data in one volume to provide an essential resource for all ceramicists, whether student or professional
