Written by Bernard Leach, the father of British studio pottery, this seminal book is the first treatise to be written by a potter on the workshop traditions handed down from the greatest period of Chinese ceramics in the Sung dynasty. It deals with four types of pottery: Japanese raku, English slipware, stoneware and oriental porcelain. With this book, potters can learn everything from how to adapt recipes for pigments and glazes to designing kilns to their local conditions. Primarily intended for practical craftsmen and students, it also appeals to lovers of ceramics and those with an interest in cultural interchange between East and West.
