Clay and Glazes for the Potter
by Daniel Rhodes, Robin Hopper

Book Description
In some sections of the ceramics industry, more has developed in the last 45 years than in the previous 4,000.

This revised and expanded edition adheres closely to the editions published in 1957 and revised in 1973, with added sections devoted to health hazards and computer calculation programs and increased color information and expanded photographic images of both historical and contemporary work.

-250 color photos plus numerous illustrations and charts.

Smashing Glazes
by Susan Peterson

Book Description
Glazing pottery is an ancient process, dating back 25,000 years, yet is a medium and art form that is still being explored and advanced today. So many variables go into creating a beautiful glaze--from ingredients to application to firing--that their recipes are prized among potters.

This breathtaking collection of work from 53 ceramic artists goes beyond a mere gallery of their work, inviting readers into their studios to share their insights into the aesthetics of ceramic surfaces as well as the formulas for some of their most successful glazes.

Ceramic Extruding
by Tom Latka

Book Description
Most ceramists own a pugmill or hand extruder and view it as simply a utilitarian device for making handles or coils. But the extruder can be the starting point for a variety of inventive and creative works of art. Extruder experts Tom and Jean Latka teach the basics of extruder use as well as how to make your own dies. Step-by-step projects include napkin rings, vases, umbrella stands, wine coolers, planters, sconce lighting, platters, sculpture, and more.

12 projects with step-by-step instructions
- Photo gallery of works by skilled, creative, and talented artists
- Solid and hollow extrusions
- Additive or subtractive methods of construction for pottery and sculpture

Chinese Glazes
by Nigel Wood

Choice Magazine
In this extraordinary volume, Wood provides a window, an avenue perhaps, into the composition and techniques used by ancient Chinese potters to achieve superb glazes admired by potters all over the world. It is an exhaustive study of both high and low temperature glazes; in a clear, straightforward manner, Wood explains how old recipes can be transcribed for today's raw materials. In a well-documented text, beautifully illustrated by both color and black-and-white photographs, Wood describes Chinese ceramic development, from the Bronze Age through the Tang and Song dynasty monochrome stoneware glazes, to the fine porcelains of Southern China. A must-have volume not only for potters but for those seeking information on Chinese glazes.

4 out of 5 stars A good basic handbuilding book., May 11, 2000
Reviewer: Jeff Brown - from Northwood, New Hampshire

This book has several very good alternative handbuilding techniques that I've found useful over the years. It is easy to understand, and is illustrated just enough to give you a good sense of what is possible using each individual technique. This book is an excellent resource for the beginner ready to move beyond the beginning.
