A potter is a person in your neighborhood.

I have always been a fan of kids books. Having 4 little nephews gives me an excuse to add books to my collection. This one book holds a special place in my heart: ABC and 123: A Sesame Street Treasury of Words and Numbers.
You can see the obvious reason below:

Soda, Clay and Fire: a new book on soda firing

It is finally here, Gail Nichols' new book on soda glazing: Soda, Clay and Fire. This book is based on her research from her PhD in Material Science on Soda Firing at Monash University (Australia). I just got my copy from Amazon (click on link to order)- so I don't feel like I can actually review it yet. But I wanted to share with you that it is finally out in print. There is still so little information published on soda firing/ glazing- this literally doubles the number of books published exclusively on the topic.



Also, in my neglect of my blog recently, I have not mentioned on here that 500 Pitchers came out in the spring. I was lucky enough to get another 2 images published in the latest publication from Lark Book's 500 series.

This series of books from Lark is beautifully done.
Inspirational for the potter and visually gratifying for the collector.
I also enjoy (and own) other book's from this series:
