A book for the curious potter.,
This review is from: Glazes from Natural Sources: A Working Handbook for Potters (Paperback)
This book is aimed at me. It's for the kind of person who thinks that local is best. Who thinks 'not invented here' is something they don't want said about their work. It's for the potter who wants to find beauty or create beauty from whatever they are given, not from what they can get. Where simplicity, trial and error and the process of finding out something is almost as important as the end result.
There are quite a few potters who use what they can get locally - especially stone types and ash - look at Hamada for instance. I feel I ought to be digging my own clay too. This book offers a wealth of information of where to go and what to try.
