· WOOD-FIRED CERAMICS – Contemporary Practices
(C. Minogue & R. Sanderson)
Hard cover, 160 pages
There has been a dramatic increase in the number of potters firing with wood within the last 30 years. The authors briefly describe the development of the main types of wood-fired kilns used by today’s potters. They then present the aesthetic aims, working practices and kilns of an international group of artists. Kiln-firing logs; clay, glaze and slip recipes; and kiln plans are also included. The work, by over 60 artists, which illustrates the text, is representative of the diversity of styles in contemporary wood-fired ceramics.
