  • Kilns and firings: kiln types, temperature controls, and more
  • Tools and equipment: from hand tools to semi-industrial equipment
  • Health and safety: a complete guide
This handsome and instructive volume also shows examples of work by some of the world's leading ceramicists, with information on how they achieve their fine results. Here is a book that lives up to its title: it is truly The Complete Potter.
