5.0 out of 5 stars A potter's "must have", 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Potter's Book (Faber Finds) (Paperback)
Pottery is a hobby of mine, and here is a lot of practical information, accumulated in the East, setting up and running the Leach Pottery, and so on. He covers design, building, materials, glazes, decoration, firing and even includes one of the pottery's profit and loss accounts.
It's a small book but concise, the photos are quite small, blurry and in black and white but his sketches are clear and helpful. I got the new book because second hand ones go for silly prices - seems to be a "collectable" book. Modern pottery books tend to be larger, much better illustrated on better quality paper.
As well as the technical side, there is fascinating history and background. He writes about his time in Japan, and other pottery traditions, including English slipware. Of course, sometimes a little out of date - he talks about progressing from wooden barrels to galvanised buckets for storing glazes! A good read and one reference to return to.

For anyone interested in Leach as a ceramicist this re-release is great news. Anyone who has visited the pottery at St Ives will have been captivated by his work and will probably want to know more - and this book fills in a lot of the gaps.

I would not wish to be without this book. Whilst pottery is not now a main hobby of mine it is a great read about all thing to do with Pottery.
