About the Author:

Linda Bloomfield Bsc, PhD, originally trained as a materials scientist and worked as a scientific researcher. She then started her own studio pottery business and now sells her thrown tableware through shops and galleries across the UK and internationally. She regularly writes articles for Ceramic Review.

Review:

Colour in Glazes starts out with very technical explanations about glaze chemistry, but not to worry, it gets easier to understand as you continue to read. After you mine the recipes, go back to chapter one to better understand the differences between the glazes. You can get a lot more out of it if you learn what makes the color work in each recipe and how to adjust recipes as needed. The book offers suggestions on adjusting glazes to fire at different temperatures and if you re not used to mixing your own glazes, chapter six tells you how. Chapter seven teaches you how to apply glazes while chapter eight guides you through testing your new glazes. If you already have a slew of glaze books, this one is shorter and more concise than some of those old books, and it includes information and recipes about rare earth oxides comparing the colors they produce to the colors you are familiar with in standard colorants. --Sumi von Dassow Pottery Making Illustrated Nov/Dec 2011
