The Ultimate Ceramic Artist's Guide to Glaze and Color
Brian Taylor and Kate Doody - All books by this author

Anyone who loves creating ceramics knows that glazing can be a labor of great love or the bane of the entire ceramic process. In the instructional and inspirational Glaze, potters will find a wealth of guidance on the glazing process as several of today’s leading ceramicists share the recipes and techniques behind their most stunning works of art—each selected specifically for its unique glaze. Entries include:
  • An overview of the artists’ work
  • A technical description of the featured piece
  • The artist’s creative intention behind the glazes used
  • Glaze recipes
Pieces are organized by temperature range, with special firing techniques for salt and wood, and sub-categorized by method of application, so the potter can easily find work that relates to his or her own practice, or simply discover other incredible approaches. With more than 450 beautiful color illustrations, a technical how-to section, and a detailed glossary, Glaze is an absolute must have for potters of all levels.

From the Reviews:
“…A well-designed and dazzling directory of artists' works, with exhibits alone worth the book's price. Pottery was never so alluring.”

“…A major book, copiously illustrated with lush photographs. Glaze is a sizeable book exemplifying the magic that is the medium.”
