The Glaze Book


Written by: Stephen Murfitt

This book, more lovingly referred to around the studio as ‘The Glaze Bible’, is an incredible glazing resource. Sorted by colour & temperature – it offers both oxidation & reduction glaze recipes – it also states whether each recipe is food safe/decorative only. You’ll find this text on the resource shelf of most Mid-fire & Stoneware potters, as a nicely printed encyclopedia of tried & true recipes. While there is little information on developing your own glazes, it shines as a recipe book for anyone looking to hit the ground running with their own glazes. Spiral bound with a hardcover – this book is built for decades of wear.
