What a brilliant book, so inspiring with gorgeous photos - I just wish wish wish that there would have been more technical details with matching photos to match on how these artists achieved their style of work. Great book though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary Artists and Approaches review 23 Nov 2008
By Carol L. Gerster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was a very good book as far as artistry and technique. However, it was not what I was looking for. I was looking for instructions on how to do all these techniques myself. Had I known there were no instructions, I would not have purchased it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A seminal, articulate, scholarly, deftly organized and superbly presented descriptive history 4 April 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The practice of firing clay and ceramic pots are as old as human civilization itself. A truly ancient technique which is still carried out today, the use of fire to turn raw clay into durable ceramic and decorating it with smoke designs has been adapted and adopted by present day artists to create truly memorable works of enduring art. "Smoke Firing: Contemporary Artists And Approaches" by internationally recognized ceramicist and smoke firing expert Jane Perryman provides an informative and illustrated survey of smoke firing techniques using bonfires, diverse containers, earth pits, saggars, and kilns. Of special note is the unique chapter on how smoke firing can be employed as an educational tool in group settings such as workshops. Illustratively featuring works by twenty-nine artists drawn from seventeen countries, "Smoke Firing" is a seminal, articulate, scholarly, deftly organized and superbly presented descriptive history and commentary which is especially recommended for personal, professional, academic, art school, and community library reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
