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.
