Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 148257733X, Paperback)

Most books on ceramics and ceramics materials tell you how a particular chemical or mineral will effect the color or properties of your glazes. "Chemistry for Crystallieri" actually tells you why these effects occur, allowing you far greater control of your glazes and the results they produce. Starting with a quick and humorous review of basic high-school chemistry gives you everything you need to know in order to understand the causes of color and the growth of crystals (both in and out of glazes). Another section gives practical suggestions for experimenting and record-keeping. The last section goes into detail on the chemistry, uses and effects of 30+ colorants and glaze additives, giving the reader a thorough grounding in the uses of each glaze component. With this knowledge in hand, creating new glazes and new crystalline effects will become easier, more reliable, and, in the end, more intuitive.
