Crystalline glazes have a magical quality that appeals to many ceramicists, but producing these glazes can be technically difficult. Diane Creber tackles the problems encountered in using this challenging medium. She describes the clays and kilns most suitable, explains how to glaze, provides glaze recipes, and discusses how to fire in both oxidation and reduction conditions. She also briefly sketches the history of crystalline glazes.

A useful guide to this exciting subject, Crystalline Glazes is perfect for both the student and the experienced potter experimenting with this technique. The second edition includes a new chapter, profiling the work of 14 potters from around the globe. These artists discuss their approaches, techniques, and recipes for achieving successful crystalline glazes.

Based in Canada, Diane Creber is a potter well known for her crystalline glazes. Her award-winning pottery has been displayed at galleries throughout Canada and in a number of books.
