Just as the good cook starts with a recipe and, when familiar with it, makes it individual, so the good potter learns how to control and develop a glaze to achieve a particular result. Over 500 glaze recipes and variations are contained in this textbook as a basis for experimentation, including those which are for domestic ware and series work as well as those which produce stunning visual results. The introductory chapters give general instructions and discuss ways around common faults. The recipes are then listed according to temperature tolerance and the ingredients are given as parts by weight, with the additional colouring oxides expressed as percentages. A brief note follows each glaze, describing its appearance and suggesting variations on the basic formula by adjustments in thickness of application, firing method or metal oxide levels. The book also contains a listing of basic glazing materials, metric conversion tables and a list of suppliers in the UK and the USA. Emmanuel Cooper has his own pottery studio in London, is a ceramics teacher and the co-editor of "Ceramic Review" magazine.
