Library Journal Review

Veteran potter Hopper (Functional Pottery) has rewritten and updated another of his successful guides for studio potters. The new edition reflects the many changes in glaze technology since the first edition of this book was published in 1984. Most striking is the shift to all color photography of samples and finished pieces by other artists a necessity when discussing glazes. Although this is a technical work, the text is interesting and readable. It belongs in academic and specialized public library crafts collections, particularly those wanting to replace the first edition. (c) Copyright 2010.
