I really enjoyed reading this, I read it from cover to cover in a day. The information is dead useful and I will definitely be keeping it in my pottery studio! Covers everything from Terra Sig to Sgraffito, it's great! Even covers different kinds of kiln firing and Decoration techniques for all three stages; greenware, bisque, and post glaze. Definitely a must have!
