Contemporary Porcelain
by Lane Peter

Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Midwest Book Review
Porcelain is prized for its vivid whiteness; but those creating it have been well aware of its quirky qualities. Lane provides a strong history and celebration of porcelain in the last two decades of the 20th century, examining technical achievements and working practices common to cermacists who work with porcelain. Numerous black and white and color photos of porcelain explore its many qualities and artistry.

Sawdust Firing (The Complete Potter)
by Karin Hessenberg

From Library Journal
This series of guides to specialized pottery techniques was originally published in England by Batsford. All three books are well illustrated with photographs and diagrams showing works in progress and finished pieces by contemporary artists. Suitable for advanced students and studio potters, they emphasize good technique and problem solving. Phethean's book on throwing pots on the wheel, the most conventional of the three, covers techniques familiar to most potters. Whyman emphasizes the special techniques and materials needed to work successfully with porcelain clay. Hessenberg discusses the procedures used by several artists who employ the unpredictable method of firing pottery in burning sawdust. Both Whyman's and Hessenberg's books have lists of suppliers in the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States, and Hessenberg also includes a glossary. These handy guides are recommended for most crafts collections.

The New Maiolica: Contemporary Approaches to Colour and Technique
by Matthias Ostermann

Choice Magazine
Ostermann provides valuable information on many areas of maiolica glaze technique. He very briefly outlines the historical background of tin glaze ware from its inception in ninth-century CE Mesopotamia through its flowering in the Renaissance of 16th-century Italy, down to the present day by including examples of more than 50 contemporary ceramists with their variety of avant-garde expressions of tin glazed clay forms. The author has conceived this volume to serve as a methodology in the practice of tin glaze ceramics. It is an all-inclusive work covering many important areas such as terminology, aesthetics, materials used, and procedural steps. Superb color photographs amply illustrate the various technical procedures discussed. A very important addition to the ceramics library.

Gilded Vessel: The Lustrous Life and Art of Beatrice Wood
by Garth Clark, Beatrice Wood

Reviewer: Donna Ragsdale (see more about me) from Green River, Wyoming

THE GILTED VESSEL is a beautiful book about an amazing woman and potter. Her life is more wonderful than any fiction and her pottery is exquisite. The only flaw is that it is too short; I want more.
