With hundreds of recipes for some of the most popular and enduring high-fire glazes, this reference will prove a boon to ceramists who want to master this complex and versatile aspect of the art. Author John Britt, who served as Clay Coordinator at the respected Penland School of Crafts, has personally tested many of the recipes, and carefully reviews every one. He offers a thorough examination of glaze materials, chemistry, and tools, and presents the basics of mixing, application, and firing procedures. There’s a wealth of information on various type of glazes, including copper, iron, shino, salt/soda, crystalline, and more. An exhaustive index of subjects and a separate index of glaze recipes will help ceramists find what they need, quickly and easily.


A fabulous reference.


Beautiful photos, well presented and high quality print. A must have reference for all potters and ceramic artists using high fire glazes on their work. Some more unusual recipes, plus how to understand a recipe so you can alter your own blends.



Excellent guide for potters


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.
