Lustreware, once associated with alchemy for its golden effects, may no longer be a guarded secret of potters and tillers, but the technique still intimidates many artists. Lustre takes on many appearances, from a warm coppery glow to a spectacular prismatic finish. Greg Daly’s encouraging and practical book gives intermediate to advanced ceramic makers and ceramic teachers the knowledge to produce an amazing variety of metallic finishes. This one-of-a-kind guide puts the magic of lustre within reach.
This book aims to explain and simplify the process of creating various types of lustre. The book covers recipes for lustre and techniques for applying and firing, as well as showing you the results of the author’s extensive testing.
