Format: Hardcover
Michael Cardew's Pioneer Pottery is a much loved book that combines the emotional and scientific sides of pottery.

After an accurate account of the chemistry and geological processes behind clay and glazes, the author describes how he applied these ideas in a practical way after WW2 where he set up a stoneware pottery in the Nigerial town of Abudja.

All the practical aspects of making, decorating and firing are covered. Cardew even tells us how to find and process our own clays, make house bricks, fire bricks and refractories. Though I suspect most of us will be buying these from the pottery supplier, it is enlightening to learn how a "pioneer" achieves these things.

The book is completed by a thoughtful essay on the role of the potter craftsman in modern society.

A "must" in any pottery library.

Had to write about Micheal Cardew in my CEramics degree and this is a very useful and informative book. Plenty of pictures and writing. All very interesting if you are learning about ceramics.
