Special Effect Glazes by Linda Bloomfield

Experienced ceramicist and ClayCraft contributor Linda Bloomfield’s latest book guides readers through the world of special effect glazes; from drippy and crackle to ash and lichen glazes. Beautifully illustrated with pieces from both emerging and established potters that showcase stunning copper oxide-blues, metallic bronzes and manganese-pink crystal glazes, Special Effect Glazes is packed full of recipes to try out: from functional oilspot glazes using iron oxide, to explosive lava glazes.

As well as discovering glaze recipes, you can learn the basic chemistry behind glazes so that you can adjust and experiment with your unique pieces. There are explanations of materials and stains, how to find them and how they affect the color and texture of the glaze, as well as practical advice on firing and troubleshooting familiar glaze-making problems. Special Effect Glazes is essential for any ceramicist interested in creating eye-catching glazes and wanting to develop their knowledge of glaze-making, or experiment with their own formulas to achieve the perfect finish.
