Contemporary potters are constantly developing ways of enhancing the surfaces of their work. The approaches they use are as varied as the potters themselves. This book contains recipes for glazes with fired results over the entire temperature range—from earthenware through stoneware and porcelain. Hundreds of glazed tiles illustrate the vast range of colors available to the potter, with recipes, descriptions, and tips for success. Along with glaze recipes for earthenware*, stoneware, and porcelain, there are detailed descriptions of the special processes involved with raku, luster, majolica, and sodaware. An inspirational gallery features finished items from professional potters. Tips on mixing glazes, application methods, and information about firing techniques are all to be found in this color bible for potters.
