Substitutions for Raw Ceramic Materials, by Edouard Bastarache

“Quebecois Dr Bastarache studied surgery, internal medicine and neuro-endocrine physiology and has a distinguished record as medical researcher and consultant in occupational and environmental medicine. While studying medicine he also studied pottery, and later taught it.

“This is a wonderful book to challenge and delight all glaze makers. It started as a successful attempt to let people unfamiliar with glaze chemistry, and without computers, substitute glaze materials when one or another is unavailable. For this experienced potter/glaze maker, the book is a joy! The only limitation for beginners might be that the glazes in it are cone 8-10R.”—Lili Krakowski in Constableville, New York, USA

Written for those with limited knowledge of ceramic chemistry. This very useful resource includes glaze recipes with variations.

With this book, potters can easily substitute and get similar results when some chemicals are missing or no longer available.

Available in English (ISBN 2-9805901-1-8), French, Spanish, Portuguese (Portugal), Portuguese (Brasil), German, Italian, and Esperanto. Order through the author's website.
