Pottery and Ceramics Books of all kinds from Airbrushing to Wheel throwing.
Potters John Hesselberth and Ron Roy present this invaluable resource for potters working with cone 6 glazes. Compared to the more traditional cone 10 method, the relatively lower firing temperature of cone 6 (2,232°F) results in faster kiln heating and cooling times, and the availability of a more diverse color palette for artists to work with. The different temperature range requires compatible glazes. Beyond that, Mastering Cone 6 Glazes provides a wealth of information for all potters, firing at a variety of temperatures, especially on the subjects of durability and cooling.
Regarded as one of the great masters of Pueblo ceramics, Margaret Tafoya (1904–2001) is known for her trademark large black polished ceramics decorated with traditional imagery of rain clouds, water serpents, bear paws, and other symbols.
This book comes out Sumi von Dassow’s love of both cooking and pottery, and her desire to share both passions with as many people as possible. You’ll discover information on materials, glazes and what to consider when making pots to cook in and serve on. You’ll also find many step-by-step techniques for creating casseroles to tagines, as well as scores of examples from dozens of artists, well-tested recipes and more. If you are a potter who loves to cook (or a cook who loves to pot), happy potting, and bon appétit!
