Descripción Faber and Faber, London, 1955. Hardcover. Condición: Good. A Potter's Book by Bernard Leach with introductions by Soyetsu Yanagi and Michael Cardew. This is the first treatise by a potter on the workshop traditions which have been 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. The student of pottery learns how to adapt recipes of pigments and glazes, and designs of kilns, to local conditions. A vivid workshop picture is given of the making of a kiln-load of pots from start to finish, and the position of the individual or artist-potter in an industrial age is touched upon. 294 pages, including extensive Index, illustrated.
