Glazing ranks as one of the most creative and challenging aspects of making pottery. From the basics of dipping and pouring to the more complex concepts of layering and spraying, whether using commercial products or formulating one's own, there are many facets to this diverse stage of ceramics. This book provides a wealth of information on techniques, materials and recipes, as well as inspirational stories from many artists and their search for the ultimate surface.

We all remember our first experience with glazing and how our hopes usually exceeded our skills and knowledge of the topic. Glazing is such an important part of ceramic art and it's rather mysterious to both the newcomer and even the seasoned professional. While the chemistry may appear to bee a bit like alchemy to the uninitiated, there is an established science and accepted practices that provide order and repeatable results. Glazes and Glazing: Finishing Techniques covers many aspects of glazing. Artists discuss their methods, their recipes and provide inspirational stories about their personal experiences in ceramics and how you can be successful in your own studio. You'll find information on glaze formulation; applications such as dipping, pouring, and spraying; firing variations; characteristics of materials; testing; and even crystalline and ash glazes along with more than 100 recipes. Whether you're looking for fresh ideas, expanding your palette or exploring new techniques, this book provides a wealth of information, instruction and inspiration you'll be able to use for years to come. Part of the American Ceramic Society's Ceramic Arts Handbook Series.
