4.0 out of 5 stars A super reference book
A comprehensive selection of glazes.It's a pity lead glazes have been omitted completely, but, nevertheless, it's one of few books offering wide selection of mid temp glazes.Am busy trying them out.

but fails to cater for those with electric kilns who wish to...

The Potter's Palette - , with clearer images and a far better format if you are looking for an illustrated first guide to mixing glazes. Especially if your planing on experimenting rather than just following a reciepy

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, illustrated glaze book, 17 Jan. 2010
By 
This book has over 400 glaze recipes, most of them are illustrated too and show different veriations of the glaze. Glazes are split up into different sections based on temperature and glaze type. There are also written sections on mixing glaze and colouring glaze, very useful indeed. Overall, an excellent book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book to have, 2 May 2008

A friend helped me use this book at university and it is a lovely cook book for glazes. very straight forward and easy to use. It is american based I believe, so there is sometimes a need to know the english version of a specific chemical glaze, but on the whole I just walked around the tubs of glaze scooping away. My friend Allen is excellent with ceramic glazes and he recommends it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very poor layout with tiny pictures on unsuitable papers, 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed with the layout of the book. With tonnes of white spaces around pages (no doubt, necessary for a good layout/design) the images of sample glazes are tiny and very poorly printed on poor quality papers. Can't believe quality publisher can totally overlook such a crucial factor in book design.

E. Cooper, the author, is well known in Japan.
His glaze recipes are the creal of his talents, imagination, and
experienced. Following its book, I myself made some glazes for
my pieces. They are successful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A classic glaze book, perfect for British potters as unlike may glaze books you can get these days, you can actually get the ingredients listed in the UK :)

I love this book, although I have to say following these recipes does not necessarily lead to the expected results! But that's pottery!
