The Complete Guide to High-Fire Glazes
by John Britt
Average Customer Review: 5.0 
out of 5 stars

With hundreds of recipes for some of the most popular and enduring high-fire glazes used today, this reference will prove a boon to ceramicists who want to master this complex aspect of the art. Author John Britt, who recently served as Clay Coordinator at the respected Penland School of Crafts, has personally tested many of the recipes himself, and carefully reviews every one. He offers a thorough examination of glaze materials, chemistry, and tools, and presents the basics of mixing, application, and firing procedures. There’s specific information on each type of glaze, including copper, iron, shino, salt/soda, crystalline, and more. An exhaustive index of subjects and a separate index of glaze recipes will help ceramicists find what they need, quickly and easily.

Ash Glazes
by Robert Tichane

From Library Journal
These two books are good sources of ideas for studio potters. Coakes presents a diverse collection of projects with glaze recipes and tips on technique from 19 potters. Many excellent photographs of additional pieces showcase the artists' work. Tichane has recipes and technical information for the ancient process of glazing with wood ash, which produces an earthy, mottled appearance favored by Asian potters. Tichane has researched the available information on ash glazes and brought it up-to-date for modern potters. This revised edition of a 1987 book has been expanded with an additional section of color photographs. Both books are suitable for crafts collections.

Crystalline Glazes
by Diane Creber

Reviewer: charles looney from Daytona Beach, FL
This is a well written book dealing with crystalline glazes. If you have tried to find material on crystalline glazes you will realize how scarce it is. I have tried four of her glaze formulas and followed her instruction on firing. Results: Two terrific glazes, one very nice glaze, and one which remained underdeveloped.

Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars Based on 2 reviews.
