Book summary

This now famous book was the first treatise to be written by a potter on the workshop traditions 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. With its help, potters can learn how to adapt recipes for pigments and glazes, and designs of kilns, to local conditions. It gives a vivid workshop picture of the making of a kiln-load of pots from start to finish, and is eloquent on the position of the individual or artist-potter in an industrial age. It is a book that is primarily intended for practical craftsmen and students, but it also has a strong appeal for all lovers of ceramics and for everyone with an interest in cultural interchange between East and West.
