Seller ID   22538

159 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 186126139X Profusely illustrated with colour photographs. "(A) comprehensive consideration of this most popular ceramic process. A line is traced from its earliest beginnings in ritual in Japan to current preoccupations dealing with the relationship between clay, the artist and fire. A concise history of Raku provides a framework for understanding the most recent developments in materials technology, while an analysis of design illu minates the ways in which new ideas are developed. This is the ideal book for both the beginner and the experienced practitioner. There is an extensive examination of the ways of generating rich and seductive surfaces, yet it also deals w i t h t h e m ost recent innovations in technology and process - all lavishly illustrated with high-quality colour photographs. The critical perspective brought to the analyses of the concepts underpinning traditional and contemporary Raku reflec ts t he au th or ' s training as a philosopher and his subsequent experience as a ceramics glaze lecturer. This book is essential, not only for any potter interested in Raku, but also for collectors and those concerned with the development of ide as and tr a dit ion s i n ce ramics." Minor edge wear, slight bump to top corner of front board. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - tiny tear at top of spine, light to moderate rubbing to glossy surface - no color loss.
