Colour in Glazes – A new book by Linda Bloomfield out 15 November 2011

A complete guide to achieving a fantastic spectrum of colourful glazes for the studio potter, Colour in Glazes looks at the full range of materials and options for creating colour in glazes, focusing on colouring oxides in detail, including the newly available rare earth oxides. It also looks at what commercial stains are made from so you can create your own. Types of base glazes and the fluxes used to make them are discussed in relation to colour response. Emphasis is placed on using colouring oxides to achieve depth and variety of colour, rather than just resorting to commercial ceramic stains. The practical aspects of mixing, applying, testing and adjusting glazes are explained. and a large section of test tiles and glaze recipes is included, for use on white earthenware, stoneware and porcelain fired in electric, gas and salt kilns.

A very useful book aimed at making glazes to achieve the colour you want, and to help you broaden your palette. There will be an extract from it in the next issue of Ceramic Review.

Format: 246×189 mm;  Binding: Paperback;  Extent: 128 pages;  Images: 110 colour (approx); Price: £16.99 – publisher A & C Black
