Novices, experienced ceramicists, and teachers rely on this colorful guide to glazing and embellishing ceramics at low temperatures. With an experienced ceramics artist and university instructor to guide you, you'll soon have a secure knowledge of applications from underglazes to overglazes. The projects include a variety of techniques ranging from simple to complex—slip trailing and sgraffito, maiolica and cone temperatures, for example—and the captions accompanying each finished piece list the clay, techniques, and firing cone used. From making your own pottery based on these projects, to being inspired by the international gallery of finished works by accomplished artists, your confidence is sure to build as you design and complete your own.
