"The first treatise by a potter on the workshop traditions which have been handed down by Koreans and Japanese 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. The student of pottery learns how to adapt recipes of pigments and glazes, and designs of kilns, to local conditions. A vivid workshop picture is given of the making of a kiln-load of pots from start to finish, and the positions of the individual or artist-potter in an industrial age is touched upon. This is a book primarily for the hand craftsman and the school, with a strong interest for all lovers of pots and for those who are interested in the culrual relationship of East and West." (dj).
