Glazes Cone 6: 1240 Degree/2264 Degree F
by Michael Bailey

Reviewer: Snail Scott from Reno, NV United States
This is not a recipe book or a catalog of glazes, nor is it a chemistry textbook. It focuses specifically on cone six oxidation (electrically-fired) glazes, with easy-to-understand charts of glaze properties, and simple explanations of the materials that create the different properties of glazes. This presentation allows the glaze creator to predict where any glaze they make may fall in terms of its firing properties, with particular emphasis on coefficient of expansion. This is an important factor in glaze design since it determines 'glaze fit': whether a particular glaze will craze or even cause cracking in the clay beneath it. This topic has seldom been explained with such clarity and simplicity.

Electric Kiln Handbook
by Ralph W. Ritchie

Book Description
We've built, operated, and repaired many electric kilns. In this day of high priced energy, knowing how to operate and maintain the Electric Kiln properly is a must. Basic electrical kiln circuits are discussed, electric kiln safety, economical firing procedures, automatic controls, and the safe use of electric kilns are all included. Integrated circuits and micro-chips are common these days, but they are all sensitive to heat damage. Do you want one near a hot kiln? Does fail-safe mean that the kiln will be protected, but the ware will be lost? Or does your kiln even fail in a safe mode? The nuclear industry didn't originate the word melt-down, we did. Hey, teachers: If the janitor finishes firing your kiln after school, be sure he reads this book first! Did you know that the light radiating from a kiln peep-hole is damaging to your eyes? The proper eye filter should be used. It's in the book, too. Any box which is heated to 1800 degrees, F, should deserve proper consideration and respect. How do you put out a fire involving a box heated to 1800 degrees? Forget about water!

Reviewer: A reader from VA, USA
This book is wonderful. It contains information on everything from properly wedging and centering clay, to how to set up your own studio and select equipment. It's informative without being so academic that it's hard to read. I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to supplement their knowledge of ceramics. I have more hands-on pottery experience than academic, so this answers all the little things I've been wondering about such as "What is the difference between earthenware and stoneware?", "How does a noborigama work?", or "What is the proper way to photograph my work?" This is the perfect studio reference book.

The Potter's Palette
by Christine Constant, Steve Ogden
The serious potter will find a multitude of great glaze recipes in this practical reference, which presents color samples of more than 700 individual glazes for both earthenware and stoneware clays. Christine Constant and Steve Ogden briefly cover the basics--mixing, applying, firing, health and safety concerns--then concentrate, for the bulk of the guide, on the results that can be achieved by adding various oxides (copper oxide, cobalt oxide, red iron oxide, etc.), glaze stains, and opacifiers to a group of base glazes to produce a tremendous range of color and surface qualities. Each result is clearly shown in a photograph of the sample color chip.
