Clearly written how-to instructions accompany photos of finished products.

The book also provides some trouble shooting if your glazes underperform.

This book has been my"ceramic bible" for the last 30 years.The best book on the market if you are really interested in clay and glazes technology. I have read it over and over during the last 30 years and it is at the base of my own book: "Substitutions for raw ceramic materials", for sale on Amazon.com. Every ceramist should own one.

This is the book we all learned from, over the years i have re-read parts that started to make sense to me, I was growing with the book. People ask me questions all day long, 90% are answered in this newly updated book, gone are the lead glazes of yesterday, welcome are new ingredients like cadycal.

Everything you ever wanted to know - and more - about clays and glazes. If you just want a quick introduction to the topic, you should skip this book. If you want a well-written, very thorough, and very clear explanation of basic ceramic principles, this is it. If you want to go even further, delving into the intricate complexities of specific clay and glaze formulations, that's all here too.

This is a great introduction into clay and glazes for anyone with even the slightest interest in the medium. It's easy to read and gives tremendous amounts of information. I'll be referring to this text for years to come.

Format: Paperback
This book is not a simple recipe book, but rather a book that goes into the origin of the clays and glaze materials. It is nicely detailed and gives the origin mineral/rock names of the rocks or the locations of origin.

This is a nice book to have with details. It makes you want to go and get your own clay and rocks from nearby and grind and make your own natural ingredients.

Some other good books: Out of the earth into the fire, The ceramic glaze handbook, High fire glazes.
