Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Written by a veteran ceramics artist for studio artists making decorative architectural tiles, this professional-level book includes practical material on glazes and kilns but emphasizes the decorative processes and design. The many beautiful illustrations are of individual tiles and tile installations by artists in several countries, thus providing an overview of tile art as it exists today. This is a good book for academic ceramics collections.

If you are looking for many small pictures with little detail for ideas, this is your book.
If you are looking for a source of instructional material with step-by-step or other detailed information on various methods of tile making and/or decorating, I STRONGLY suggest that you save your money & look elsewhere.
This book was a great disappointment to me & I found much more useful information in Giorgini's book, "Handmade Tiles."

After I got through the section on the history of tile...I don't understand why tile books all start with the same history lession, I found the book to be extremely informative and very well versed on a multitude of tile making and decorating applications. Thanks to Mr. Clark for sharing his knowledge.
