Dust jacket notes: "This book, long the standard work on ceramic glaze technology, is a comprehensive study of and guide to the understanding, use and application of glazes. completely revised, expanded and updated, this edition adds the discoveries of new formulas, processes and applications of the last two decades to the fundamental principles of ceramics accumulated over the centuries. Ceramics which could not be glazed in the past are now glazed successfully as the result of recent research covered here. New ceramics, unknown ten or more years ago, are described and information on their glazes is detailed. There are numerous glaze formulas for every type of ceramic known, together with concise descriptions of the behavior and function of the individual chemical and mineral components. Advancing from the days when the glaze making process depended on imprecise formulas, this book presents glaze technology as an exact science. It gives the latest practices for selecting and applying glazes, as well as new and better approaches to glaze problems. It also tells how to calculate and modify glazes, and how to recognize and cure defects. New sections on colors, stains and pigments are of particular interest. Explanation are clean enough for the student or hobbyist, yet it is an invaluable reference work for ceramics engineers and technicians working with whitewares, enamels, glass, electronic ceramics, or brick, tile, clay pipe and other building materials. Contains 165 tables as well as many charts and illustrations."
