Description

"This book made me fall in love with glaze all over again."
—Ben Carter, author of Mastering the Potter’s Wheel

Whether you look forward to glazing your work or are guilty of saying "I hate glazing!" Amazing Glaze is for you. Join author and Odyssey Clayworks founder Gabriel Kline on a journey that makes glazing less intimidating and more fun. Start in the "glaze kitchen" where you'll set yourself up for success, then move on to learning the tools and techniques for getting your glaze right every time. Along the way, Gabriel shares dozens of tried-and-true recipes and combinations for both mid-range and high-fire glazes.

The recipes and foundational techniques of Amazing Glaze are just the beginning. Learn about layering with slip and underglaze, work with resists, and combine techniques to take your glazing above and beyond. Whether you're after crystalline effects, an elusive red, or a crash-course in applying decals it's all here. A variety of artist features and stunning gallery work from today's top artists will leave you inspired and ready to get glazing.
