Format: Hardcover
Daniel Rhodes is an impeccable reference source for the subject(s). Written nearly fifty years ago, this revised edition (1973) has been continuously reprinted and is absolutely indispensable for both professional and amateur potters alike. It goes right from basics to the details of specialised techniques and materials by way of in depth explanations, always given in plain English. A chemistry degree is not required to read this book but the information it contains is exhaustive. Definitely a must buy.

This edition replaced one I lent to someone and lost some years ago. I have found it to be just as useful now as it was then, and my experience since then has greatly increased!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had wanted a glaze book with lots of coloured illustrations to help me select new or appropriate pages. There were very few in this book - lots of descriptions but not very helpful to a beginner.

Ceramic bible 19 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book has been my"ceramic bible" for the last 30 years.The best book on the market if you are really interested in clay and glazes technology. I have read it over and over during the last 30 years and it is at the base of my own book: "Substitutions for raw ceramic materials", for sale on Amazon.com. Every ceramist should own one.

The book to read if you are serious about learning 28 Dec 2000
By brant@nmclay.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the book we all learned from, over the years i have re-read parts that started to make sense to me, I was growing with the book. People ask me questions all day long, 90% are answered in this newly updated book, gone are the lead glazes of yesterday, welcome are new ingredients like cadycal.

Definitive reference book 7 Oct 2005
By LMG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Everything you ever wanted to know - and more - about clays and glazes. If you just want a quick introduction to the topic, you should skip this book. If you want a well-written, very thorough, and very clear explanation of basic ceramic principles, this is it. If you want to go even further, delving into the intricate complexities of specific clay and glaze formulations, that's all here too.
