Library Journal Review

These two books are good sources of ideas for studio potters. Coakes presents a diverse collection of projects with glaze recipes and tips on technique from 19 potters. Many excellent photographs of additional pieces showcase the artists' work. Tichane has recipes and technical information for the ancient process of glazing with wood ash, which produces an earthy, mottled appearance favored by Asian potters. Tichane has researched the available information on ash glazes and brought it up-to-date for modern potters. This revised edition of a 1987 book has been expanded with an additional section of color photographs. Both books are suitable for crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
