CM's Guide to Materials & Glazes
One of the primary efforts of Ceramics Monthly magazine, from the very beginning in 1953 to the present, has been to illustrate and explain the technical aspects of ceramic art so that an individual in a studio has a high chance for success. Any good ceramic-art library needs to include Ceramics Monthly, and the technical-reference shelf in that library now needs to include this book.
Compiled from years worth of technical explanation and reference materials from the magazine, Ceramics Monthly's Guide to Materials and Glazes will help you interpret results in your own studio, assess recipes from others for possible use, and pursue new ideas with knowledge and confidence.
Testing, exploration, and experimentation are at the core of artistic discovery, and this volume is a resource for understanding common ceramic materials and their characteristics. Full of practical, applicable information you can put to use every day in your studio, it will help you bring your own ideas from inspiration to reality!
