Fully updated and revised,Colour in Glazes is an essential handbook for the studio potter working towards achieving a fantastic spectrum of colorful glazes.

A complete guide to achieving a fantastic spectrum of colorful glazes for the studio potter,Colour in Glazes looks at all the methods of achieving color in glazes, focusing on coloring oxides in detail, including the newly available rare earth oxides. Types of base glazes and the fluxes used to make them are discussed in relation to color response.

Emphasis is placed on using coloring oxides to achieve depth and variety of color, rather than just resorting to commercial ceramic stains. The practical aspects of mixing, applying, testing and adjusting glazes are explained, and a large section of test tiles and glaze recipes is included, for use on white earthenware, stoneware and porcelain fired in electric, gas and salt kilns. A very useful book aimed at making glazes to achieve the color you want, and to help you broaden your palette.

Linda Bloomfieldhas been involved with pottery since 1973, although her career path led her to train as a materials scientist, and she received a BSc in Engineering Science and a PhD in Materials Science from Warwick University. After stints as a visiting scholar at MIT and as a researcher in Tsukuba, Japan and London, she set up her current studio in London in 2001. Since 2003, she has been selling through galleries across the UK and internationally, and her tableware is stocked by Liberty and David Mellor.
