5.0 out of 5 stars Must have reference book, 9 Dec 2010
This review is from: Dry Glazes (Ceramics Handbooks) (Paperback)
Jeremy Jernegan has written the definitive book on dry glazes. The recipes that I have tried have all worked for me (although admittedly some were different from how they looked in the book)and the matteness of the glazes allows colours and textures to take centre stage, something that shiny glazes can mask or distract from. If you make sculptural or studio ceramics, these glazes may be just the thing you are looking for to embellish without overwhelming. Most of them look unsuitable for domestic ware owing to the ingredients and the finished textures but they remain some of the most eye catching glazes for the studio potter. I have found them to work better with stoneware than porcelain and if you stain the clay with oxides, they have a very satisfying way of bleeding through the glazes, adding to the final effect of the piece.
