This book made me fall in love with glaze all over again. With
Amazing Glaze, Gabriel has created that rare glaze book that
is both thorough and accessible, giving you the information and
inspiration you need to spark your creativity. It is a must have
for potters that are looking to expand their knowledge of ceramic
surfaces and glazes. * Ben Carter, author of Mastering the Potter's
Amazing Glaze takes an engaging look at what a glaze is, then why and how to use it, with a strong emphasis on planning ahead. It's a book that will help many who struggle with the process-it may even encourage a new perspective for those who are in the 'I hate glazing' camp. If you find that you approach glazing with trepidation and anxiety that leads to indecision, or if you need more variation, creativity, and spontaneity in your surfaces, Kline's guidance will help you get beyond those roadblocks and find successful, personalized solutions to finishing your work. * Jessica Knapp, Editor, Ceramics Monthly *
