Glazes from a Potter's Perspective Book Review:

Glazes from a Potter's Perspective: A Simple, Kitchen-Method Approach to Understanding Glaze Development¿ is a book that demystifies and explains glazes from a potter's perspective. The book is filled with valuable information from the vast glazing experimentation and experience of master potter, Steve Loucks. His testing methods and approach differ from the scientific approach for making glazes where ceramic engineers think in terms of what and how many molecules of certain chemicals make up the glaze within their ratios and limits to Steve¿s approach that is from a potter's perspective. He goes right to the tests using the actual ingredients that are available from ceramic supply centers to make glazes. His simple, kitchen-method approach is easy to understand without the complicated use of mathematical, ceramic engineering calculations, or the need for software programs. It goes right to the glaze tests to see how much and to what extent an influencing ingredient has on a glaze, the actual instead of predicted results. His testing methods and processes, which are outlined and illustrated throughout the book, are easy to follow yielding effective, useful results while using the glaze materials in a resourceful manner to be environmentally responsible. The book begins by identifying the numerous characteristics that differentiate and distinguish the various glazes that he has worked with throughout his ceramics career to provide a common vocabulary for ceramic artists. Glazes are explained first in theory and then in reality. Further discussion outlines the component parts that make up a glaze to gain an understanding on how to evaluate a glaze to adjust its melting temperature, flow, and surface qualities. Then, the testing procedures are outlined and illustrated to accomplish those tasks. Additional information includes the influencing factors affecting a glaze, glaze application methods, and firing processes. A supplemental chapter lists the glaze recipes used on the pieces illustrated in the book of his and the contributing editor, Lynnette Hesser's work, including the glazing processes used on each piece. Steve's goal is to help ceramic artists gain a better understanding of glazes for greater success with their glazing, glaze development, and artwork.

Clay and Glazes for the Potter Book Review:

My purpose in writing this book has been to present in as clear and understandable form as possible the important facts about ceramic materials and their use in pottery. The ceramic medium has a rich potential. It is so various and adaptable that each culture and each succeeding generation finds in it a new means of expression. As a medium, it is capable of great beauty of form, color, and texture, and its expressions are unique not only for variety but for permanence and utility as well. To make full use of the medium, the ceramist or potter not only needs skill, imagination, and artistic vision, but he also needs to have a sound knowledge of the technical side of the craft. This knowledge has not been easy to come by, and many of those seriously engaged in pottery have learned through endless experimentation and discouraging failures. It is hoped that the present work will enable the creative worker to go more directly to his goal in pottery, and that it will enable him to experiment intelligently and with a minimum of lost effort. While technical information must not be considered as an end in itself, it is a necessary prerequisite to a free and creative choice of means in ceramics. None of the subjects included are dealt with exhaustively, and I have tried not to overwhelm the reader with details. The information given is presented in as practical form as possible, and no more technical data or chemical theory is given than has been thought necessary to clarify the subject. This work is organized as follows: Part One—Clay Chapter I. Geologic Origins of Clay Chapter 2. The Chemical Composition of Clay Chapter 3. The Physical Nature of Clay Chapter 4. Drying and Firing Clay Chapter 5. Kinds of Clay Chapter 6. Clay Bodies Chapter 7. Mining and Preparing Clay Part Two—Glazes Chapter 8. The Nature of Glass and Glazes Chapter 9. Early Types of Glazes Chapter 10. The Oxides and Their Function in Glaze Forming Chapter 11. Glaze Materials Chapter 12. Glaze Calculations, Theory and Objectives Chapter 13. Glaze Calculation Using Materials Containing More Than One Oxide Chapter 14. Calculating Glaze Formulas from Batches or Recipes Chapter 15. Practical Problems in Glaze Calculation Chapter 16. The Composition of Glazes Chapter 17. Types of Glazes Chapter 18. Originating Glaze Formulas Chapter 19. Fritted Glazes Chapter 20. Glaze Textures Chapter 21. Sources of Color in Glazes Chapter 22.

Salt Glazing Book Review:

Salt-glazing has a long history, from its early use in German storage jars to Victorian industrial sewage pipes to its current position as one of the most exciting areas of studio ceramics. In this book, Phil Rogers looks at all aspects of this very special glazing technique. He starts with a brief overview of the history of salt glazing and then discusses the technical considerations that set this form of glazing apart from all others. Given particular consideration are kilns, which are such an important factor in this technique. Finally he presents a survey of the world's leading artists using this particular medium. Salt glazing, with its distinctive 'orange peel' surface, has long attracted both makers and collectors. This beautifully illustrated book should be a must on the reference shelves of all ceramicists and collectors or studio ceramics, but it should particularly appeal to all those who enjoy the wonderful surface textures that this medium provides.
