I am a biginner potter, looking for a good kiln book which explains many
firing pattern.
Can anybody suggest one?
I fire cone6 oxidation with electric kiln.

Any comment would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

" Ceramics" by Glenn Nelson is a good book for you to consider. It has
more than just kiln information for a beginner. Another book is "The
Potter's Primer"by Eleanor Chroman.
Go to your public library and check out the books they have for more
help. Mia in hot ABQ

Hi Mel,
Got the book this week. Watched the DVD, loved the wood firing with David.
