This book is a comprehensive work of considerable magnitude which clearly and logically presents the potter with information on the sources and character of materials, the behavior of clays and glaze minerals during forming and firing processes, forming methods, and glaze construction, together with explanations of terminology and historical development. The Dictionary's special feature is that it is set out as an index of key words and phrases, giving the reader quick access to as much, or as little, information as he requires on any particular topic. Under each heading is a simple definition, usually followed by a short explanation; a detailed article often follows in which technical points are lucidly explained in simple language and with easy-to-follow diagrams and line drawings. For the first time, the potter has easy access in one volume to a vast range of information, couched in non-technical language and with copious explanatory illustrations - there are nearly 300 line drawings and nearly as many photographs. 349 pages including an appendix of numerous tables needed by every serious potter.
