Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This new edition of Zakin's basic pottery book has been completely rewritten, with new color photographs replacing the mostly black-and-white photos of the first edition. To quote Val M. Cushing's foreword, "a very good book has become an even better book." Zakin, a veteran potter and teacher, discusses all types of fired ceramics, including tiles and architectural pieces. There are several good chapters on glazes and other surface treatments. The numerous photos illustrate techniques and finished work by other artists. An excellent book for potters at all levels, this belongs in academic as well as public library collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
