About this product
- DescriptionLustreware, once associated with alchemy for its golden effects, may longer be a guarded secret of potters and tillers, but the technique still intimidates many artists. The challenging mix of science and art requires a great deal of experimentation to achieve the desired results. Perfecting lustre demands patience, experience, and, above all, kwledge. Yet the iridescent beauty of this decorative technique makes it all worthwhile. Lustre takes on many appearances, from a warm coppery glow to a spectacular prismatic finish. In Lustre, ceramic artist Greg Daly demystifies the method and removes the guesswork from the process. Lustre begins with a brief historical overview of the technique, from its origins in ninth-century Tunisia to the application of natechlogy in the ceramics industry today. Daly then guides ceramicists through each lustre production method: pigment, glaze, resin, and fuming. In each case, he breaks down the essential techniques and important safety procedures through simple step-by-step instructions and recipes. The handbook provides detailed technical information in clear language and easy-to-read tables and charts. The results, presented in full-color photographs, are sure to inspire. Lustre features examples of some of the world's best ceramics. Daly's encouraging and practical book gives intermediate to advanced ceramic makers and ceramic teachers the kwledge to produce an amazing variety of metallic finishes. This one-of-a-kind guide puts the magic of lustre within reach.
