    Comments about The Complete Guide to High-fire Glazes:

    I use this book as a clear guide for making glazes for my pottery. The materials used in the book are US products which can cause a few problems for Australian potters but not insurmountable. Clear and easy to follow. There maybe a small editing error at bottom of page 13, as I found it difficult to understand but apart from that tiny blip I found it an excellent reference book for high fire glazes.
