“Firing Ceramics” is the first textbook in the English language devoted entirely to the subject of firing in over fifty years. Most existing books on ceramic manufacturing processes cover the entire spectrum from raw material to finishing. These texts often have only one or two chapters devoted to the firing process. This book has been written solely on the firing process to serve not only as an in-depth textbook for our ceramic schools but as a firing handbook for anyone who manufactures ceramics.This book is divided into three parts with Part I describing what happens inside a kiln to the ceramic itself plus what kiln furniture may be required and how to develop the firing cycle. Part II deals with all the different kinds of kilns that exist and how to select the right kind for your job. Lastly, Part III is devoted to the latest in firing practice, industry by industry.

A lightweight book at best. Little or no technical data, and essentially just a picture-book.
