About this title


Capture the Beauty of Ash Glazes

Ash Glazes is the definitive reference for potters who want to achieve success with these highly variable glazes. Author Robert Tichane takes the guesswork out of ash glazes, sharing the results of his exhaustive research and experimentation.

Recipes for nearly 40 ash glazes are included as well as instructions for making synthetic ash glazes. Clearly labeled glaze tests illustrate the effect of different materials and circumstances in the firing process. A full color section showcases the remarkable effects possible with ash glazes.

From Library Journal:

These two books are good sources of ideas for studio potters. Coakes presents a diverse collection of projects with glaze recipes and tips on technique from 19 potters. Many excellent photographs of additional pieces showcase the artists' work. Tichane has recipes and technical information for the ancient process of glazing with wood ash, which produces an earthy, mottled appearance favored by Asian potters. Tichane has researched the available information on ash glazes and brought it up-to-date for modern potters. This revised edition of a 1987 book has been expanded with an additional section of color photographs. Both books are suitable for crafts collections.
