Chinese glazes have long presented a technical challenge to Western potters, and this book is the most complete .
The story of Chinese glazes is also the story of Chinese ceramics itself, one of the most fascinating and influential traditions in ceramic history.
Chinese Glazes Their Origins, Chemistry, and Recreation. 272 pages 8 1/2 x 11 100 color, 180 b/w illus. Chinese glazes have been admired throughout history for their extraordinary qualities and colors-not least in China itself, where their appearance has been compared variously to jade, to tea-dust, to hare's fur, or to the "color of the sky after the rain. Some Chinese glazes are vibrant and brilliant in tone, while others are deep, complex, and subtle, their properties seeming to change according to ambient light.

Oriental Glazes by Michael Bailey. Oriental Glazes offers a complete overview of the art of high fire reduction glazing, which can be notoriously difficult to master.
Chinese ceramics and their glazes have delighted and enthralled the world for centuries. In this book, Nigel Wood traces the development of Chinese glazes from the Bronze Age to the present day. He carefully describes how Chinese glazes were made, and how they evolved over some 3000 years of continuous production. He provides analyses and shows how their superb qualities can be reproduced with common Western raw materials. The book is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of colour plates of Chinese potters and Chinese kilns.
