Whether called maiolica or majolica, vivid tin-glazed ceramics have delighted pottery lovers for centuries with a depth and luminosity that cannot be achieved using other decorative techniques. This unique ceramic process offers endless possibilities for functional pieces as well as more sculptural works. Ceramicists who wish to begin exploring this historic and increasingly popular coloring method will find everything they need to know in Maiolica, a handbook by celebrated potter and educator Daphne Carnegy.

This practical, concise guide covers the essential steps of creating maiolica ware, from clay selection to glaze firing. In a down-to-earth tone, Daphne Carnegy explains how to choose the right clay body, compose glazes, and use glaze application techniques such as brushwork, wax resist, decals, lusters, and enamels. Maiolica includes glaze recipes and a chapter on troubleshooting, as well as important health and safety information. Each procedure and concept is presented in clear detail, accompanied by color photographs and easy-to-read tables. In addition to providing how-to instruction, this inspiring book celebrates maiolica traditions as far back as ninth-century Mesopotamia. It also shares useful insights from many of the best artists working in the medium today.

With 100 full-color illustrations and supportive instruction from one of the world's finest potters, this beautiful and useful book is an excellent choice for novice potters and ceramics teachers alike.

After a brief historical overview of the subject, the book looks first at the basic materials and processes involved, covering clay bodies, glazes, glazing, pigments and firing, and then moves on to explore surface treatment in depth. It describes all the usual techniques associated with maiolica, such as brushwork, sgraffito, wax resist, stencils, sponging and on-glaze decoration, as well as some more unusual methods and combinations.

Part of the Ceramics Handbook series: conceived as an introduction to various topics and techniques relating to the use of clay. Aimed at the student or the practiced ceramicist experimenting in a new area.
