John Britt is simply not a mercenary kinda guy.
I second your review on his book. I have 2 and need to return
It and Phil Rogers' book on Ash Glazes are my glaze Bibles.

I can't say enough about his book either. Having been someone who has rea=
many books on glazes, I think this is the MOST thorough, in depth, and fu=
details when it comes to specifics like, firing schedules and atmosphere,=
It is a MUST have!

Thanks for the kind comments and as regards your question:=3D20=3D20
"I just as often wonder why he doesn't promote his book, which
is for sale at modest cost, and is chock full of advice,
reminders, tips and how-to's as well as direct recipe

It is simple: I don't think that clayart should be used solely as marketi=

John Britt's book on high fire glazes is the best out there- bar none!
It not only gives you a great palette of colours he tells you the
firing schedule to achieve the results you want. I'm with Lee on Britt
and Roger's for the two best books out there. They also contain a
hellava lot of nice eye candy in the pot dept.
PS: John: The real money is in mid temp. Self publish if you really
want to cash in. CM does an amazing job of the marketing and your
margin will be a hellava lot higher than I imagine you're getting now

John Britt's book is good on the basis that Tom Buck was the technical
advisor. The photographs are beautiful. The graphic designer did a
great job in this book as the information were laid out very nicely.
The lack of analysis makes it not useful for non-US glaze testers.
For the thinking potters, Ian Curries' books are useful for any
materials in any country. There is also another book, MC6G that only
deals with glaze stability in depth and the glazes apparently all work
beautifully taken out of its stability context.
