About this title


This is the sequel to "Potter's Book of Glaze Recipes" by the same author. The book provides over 1000 recipes and variations and a wide range of temperatures and firing conditions. This book varies in five ways. Firstly, the use of colouring slips is explained, and their effects on the glaze recipes; these slips are applied to the pot before it is biscuit fired, and during the glaze firing react to give a seemingly endless range of fascinating textures, colours and surfaces. Secondly, more categories of glaze are given, classified according to temperature, thus giving the potter more choice. Thirdly, colour photographs are used to illustrate specific glazes rather than particular effects, so being of greater use. Fourthly, the glazes are indexed for specific colours, enabling the potter to locate various special effects and colours more easily. And finally, a note has been added on the use of quick-fire kilns, which have come into wider use in recent years. The book is aimed at the student, the amateur or the professional. Emmanuel Cooper is also the author of "Handbook of Pottery", "Taking Up Pottery", "Electric Kiln Pottery", "A History of World Pottery","New Ceramics" (with Eileen Lewenstein), "Pottery" and "Glazes for the Studio Potter" (with Derek Royle). He is a member of the Craftsmen Potters Association of Great Britain.
