Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very fascinating and informative book for any pottery enthusiast. Having come across the author at various pottery festivals and admired her work I'm glad I eventually decided to sport out on the book. It gives details, illustrations and procedures of not only her work but numerous slipware pieces by many potters over the centuries.

As a novice potter,desperate to find a good glaze recipe, I'm surrounded by books and a wealth of advice.I have endured the misery of one failed experiment after another.This book came as a lifeline.In it the author comments on her 3 year search for a well-fitting glaze. She was right.The book inspires you to 'go for it' and is written in a down to earth, straightforward fashion.Am so grateful to Mary for sharing her wisdom through this book and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone out there on the same intriguing journey.

really nice book from a renowned slipware artist 7 Mar. 2014
By Laurel N - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an informative book giving both a little history of the art and enough technical information to be able to attempt slip trailing on your own pots. The book is warmly and personally written and she provides nice color pictures of her work and the work of others. It will be helpful to anyone wanting to learn to do slip trailing or just interested in the process. This is a difficult art to learn on your own, or with the help of a book. But it is a helpful book, none the less and I think it deserves a 5.

Filled with photography of fine wares 21 Mar. 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mary Wondrausch On Slipware is the revised reprint of Ms. Wondrausch's informative discourse on the history of slipware, from its creation to its development, marketing, and the many techniques and solidly practical applications involved. Filled with photography of fine wares, Mary Wondrausch On Slipware is a lavish and thoughtful presentation of wares as art, and very highly recommended for anyone with an interest in seeing and learning about practical wares preserved through history. Mary Wondrausch On Slipware is ideal as a Memorial Fund acquisition selection for academic and community libraries.
