Salt-glazed ceramics are very popular both among makers and collectors, due to their distinctive 'orange peel' surface. This guide covers the history and technical side of salt glazing as well as providing a showcase of the leading salt glaze artists from around the world.
November, 2020
Salt-glazing has a long history, from its early use in German storage jars to Victorian industrial sewage pipes to its current position as one of the most exciting areas of studio ceramics. In this book, Phil Rogers looks at all aspects of this very special glazing technique. He starts with a brief overview of the history of salt glazing and then discusses the technical considerations that set this form of glazing apart from all others. Given particular consideration are kilns, which are such an important factor in this technique. Finally he presents a survey of the world's leading artists using this particular medium. Salt glazing, with its distinctive 'orange peel' surface, has long attracted both makers and collectors. This beautifully illustrated book should be a must on the reference shelves of all ceramicists and collectors or studio ceramics, but it should particularly appeal to all those who enjoy the wonderful surface textures that this medium provides.
