Soda glazing was, for many years, the neglected cousin of salt glazing. As pollution laws have become stricter, however, more potters have turned to soda and, to their delight, found not only the traditional orange peel surface but also a subtle palette of colors that have made them sit up and take notice.
In this book Ruthanne Tudball discusses the history of and techniques involved in soda glazing. She includes body and slip recipes, kiln designs, and firing methods specifically developed for soda glazing. She illustrates her text with the work of an international group of artists.
Ruthanne Tudball is a well-known potter, teacher, and lecturer. She is a fellow of the Craft Potters Association and is on the Craft Council List of Selected Makers. Her work appears in private and public collections in Europe as well as the United States.
