Lustre is a very tricky technique which gives stunning results, but can be quite difficult to achieve successfully. This handbook aims to explain and simplify the process, with thorough coverage of all the options.
Greg Daly has previously written Glazes and Glazing for us, is well established in the ceramic field and has run workshops on creating lustres. He exhibits in group shows around the world, has work in 70 different national and international museums and has won many awards for his work.
The enthusiasm for his personal alchemy and the excitement that
exploration generates is evident throughout Daly's book. His
extremely thorough approach to record keeping, with constant
attention to every detail, is an important example for anyone to
follow, if they hope to achieve repeatable effects in what is an
uncertain medium. * Ceramic Review *
