Illustrated Dictionary of Practical PotteryBook - 1992 | 3rd ed.
The new edition of a standard reference first published in 1973 carries some 1,200 entries, the new ones addressing health and hygiene concerns, the others presenting techniques, types of glazes and firing methods, and chemical constants.
