9780713676716: Dry Glazes (Ceramics Handbooks)

Dry glazes, also known as matte glazes, provide ceramic artists with an alternative to conventional glossy and transparent finishes. Potters such as Lucie Rie and Hans Coper frequently used matte and opaque coatings in their work. Contemporary sculptors employ dry glazes to add texture and depth to the surface of their pieces. Still, little information has been published on matte glaze techniques until now.

In Dry Glazes, artist and educator Jeremy Jernegan covers everything ceramicists need to know to create and manipulate a range of matte glazes, from satin to cratered. This compact yet complete guide contains more than 270 formulas and recipes for slips, sigillatas, vitreous englobes, oxides, and stains. Jernegan gives clear and thorough instruction on application and firing methods, including raku. He also explains safe and environmentally responsible ways to handle the chemicals involved. Dry Glazes not only contains step-by-step color photographs of test tiles and procedures; it features illustrations of works by contemporary makers who have used matte glazes to great effect.

With over one hundred illustrations and an in-depth treatment of techniques, materials, and creative approaches, Dry Glazes is a smart addition to any clay worker's library. It is a practical and inspirational resource for ceramics practitioners, instructors, and students who want to make or alter their own glazes.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book covers everything you need to know to understand and create dry glazes. There is not much information available on dry glazes and this focuses on them entirely.

This book covers slips and engobes, oxides and stains, matt glazes and low alumina surfaces, as well as textured and pitted glazes. It explains thoroughly what makes up a dry glaze and how to create them. It is illustrated with work by artists using these glazes, as well many test tiles of examples of dry glazes with their corresponding recipes, making it a valuable resource for ceramicists working in this area.
