Dry Glazes, Paperback Book


This book covers everything you need to know to understand and create dry glazes.

There is not much information available on dry glazes and this focuses on them entirely.

Dry glazes were and are used by some potters (Lucie Rie and Hans Coper are well-known examples) and often by ceramicists creating sculpture, where a shiny glaze is inappropriate.

This book covers slips and engobes, oxides and stains, matt glazes and low alumina surfaces, as well as textured and pitted glazes.

It explains thoroughly what makes up a dry glaze and how to create them.

It is illustrated with work by artists using these glazes, as well many test tiles of examples of dry glazes with their corresponding recipes, making it a valuable resource for ceramicists working in this area.
