Along with hundreds of recipes, it explores mixing, application, specific firing and cooling cycles, and all the factors that make glazes work. See how to boost colors with intense stains, washes, and underglazes; achieve stunning results that equal high-fire glazing, and expand the frontiers of mid-range with tips for wood, salt, and soda firing.

The book opens with a detailed history of the cultural and ethnic influences on New Mexico food from pre-Columbian times... There are dozens of personal, literary, and historical asides in the margins of the 100 recipes the Jamisons have chosen."
