Welcome to The Ceramic Shop's Book Department! Whether you are a beginning student of clay or an advanced technician, we have a book for you. For the beginning ceramics artist, we carry instructional books on wheel-throwing, handbuilding, and glazing. For those who enjoy surface decoration on their wares, we have a number of books on image transfer, slip decorating techniques and glazing -- including Jason Bige Burnett’s popular new publication, Graphic Clay. For the advanced ceramicist interested in exploring the world of glaze making, we carry books on colorants, glaze chemistry and general glaze recipes. In addition, here you will find literature on different types of firings - including gas, electric, raku and wood.
And for those of you who are not hands-on clay artist, but rather just enjoy looking at fine pottery or learning the history of ceramics, we have books on those topics as well -- we carry several volumes of the popular ‘500’ series, which you can check out here.
