The authors has included sections on raku and soda firing, with a basic description of how each is achieved, and relevant recipes.
However, what really made the book for me, was a gallery of respected ceramicists who describe, briefly, their techniques, and sometimes include a recipe for the specific glaze/s. It helped to put the glazes into the wider context of surface treatment, and provided invaluable inspiration.
Quite a few of the earthenware glaze recipes featured are simply a transparent with a coloured stain added (which feels like a bit of a rip off) most of which use lead sesquilicate, so not good for food and not good to breath in. You can probably substitute it for something else, haven't tried this yet though. If you are from ireland or britain its certainly worth getting this book, I bought an american book with this one and have no idea what most of the raw ingredients even are! Great price for it, packed well, delivery was quick enough. happy days.
