Whether you fire in oxidation, reduction, or neutral - with gas, electricity, or wood - High-Fire Glazes
delivers an enormous array of surface possibilities. The recipes in
this book have been used and tested by more professional artists, over a
longer period of time, than those at other temperature ranges. It's not
a matter of status or comparative desirability, but a factor of the
reality that the history of studio ceramics in the United States was
built largely at high temperatures. And you are the beneficiary of the
reliability that comes from such thorough and wide-ranged testing.
Professionals and students alike will be able to use this book with
success on a shallow learning curve. High heat does not mean high
difficulty. If anything, it gets easier and more exciting! We mitigate
the risks, and you reap the rewards!
