Craftsman House, 1997 - Crystalline glazes - 96 pages
Crystalline glazes have a magical quality that appeals to many ceramicists. Unfortunately, producing these glazes can be technically difficult. Diane Creber tackles the problems involved in using this challenging medium. She describes the clays and kilns most suitable, explains how to glaze, provides glaze recipes, and discusses how to fire in both oxidation and reduction conditions. She also briefly sketches the history of crystalline glazes. A useful guide to this exciting subject, Crystalline Glazes is perfect for both the student and the practiced potter experimenting with this technique. This second edition includes a new chapter, profiling the work of fourteen potters from around the globe. These artists discuss their approaches, techniques, and recipes for achieving successful crystalline glazes. Book jacket.
