Softcover, reprint edition, 394gms, 188 pages. This volume introduces the first-year student and the beginner to ceramic processes and techniques without too much of the physics and chemistry which are needed for more advance work. After a short history of the art, the text follows the same course as the ceramic process itself, starting with the basic materials and how they are formed, proceeding to the firing in the kiln, and ending with final surface treatements. Profusely illustrated with over 170 illustrations in black and white and 14 in colour. Book is in good condition with general wear and tear and mild page discolouration/spotting throughout. There are a few small pencil markings on the inside front page. Front cover shows some creasing, otherwise no other pre-loved markings.
