Current advances in the formulation and chemical aspects of glazes and glass coatings make this comprehensive resource the most up-to-date reference on glazes for the ceramics industry and studio potter. By focusing on the process of making ceramic coatings, their chemical makeup, and the properties of these coatings, <i>Understanding Glazes</i> is a book that will appeal to a wide-ranging audience from industries involved in the manufacturing of tile, ceramic coating materials, sanitaryware, tableware, hobby and giftware to faculty and students in ceramic engineering, to studio potters.
