The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes : Glazing and Firing at Cones 4-7
About the book
This is a complete studio guide to successful glazing at mid-range temperature. It explores all the fundamental techniques, as well as offering artisan tips for specialist glazing. It comes from expert potter and teacher John Britt. According to Ceramics Monthly, approximately 75 per cent of potters glaze their pieces at mid-range temperatures, and this complete studio guide eliminates the guesswork from the popular process. Along with hundreds of recipes, it explores mixing, application, specific firing and cooling cycles and all the factors that make glazes work. See how to boost colours with intense stains, washes, and underglazes; achieve stunning results that equal high-fire glazing, and expand the frontiers of mid-range with tips for wood, salt and soda firing.
