This title is conceived by Matthias Ostermann as a workshop in print, guiding the reader progressively through some of the conceptual, material, and technical concerns that inform this very demanding medium. The New Maiolica opens with a Foreward by Alan Caiger-Smith and a brief history of tin glaze. Following this, important aesthetic and conceptual considerations are broached that, in turn, are the necessary precursors to the use of materials in the making process. Colour theory is followed by a step-by-step approach to the creation of an individual colour palette, and this precedes an exploration of brushwork, and many specifically illustrated surface-decoration techniques. The work of over 50 international ceramists are shown, giving evidence to the great variety of contemporary expression in tin glaze. To conclude, there is an examination of the problems that can occur in maiolica production, and suggested solutions, followed by a list of recommended reading. This book specifically addresses the practice of tin glaze, but can also be a source book for any ceramist attracted to color and painting.
