Glaze: The Ultimate Ceramic Artist's Guide to Glaze and Color by Kate Doody

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 color, so the potter can easily find work that relates to his or her own color aesthetic, 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.
