A superb book about single firing is from Dennis Parks :
"A potter's guide to raw glazing and oil firing"
PITMAN ref ISBN 0 273 01498 6
Written in 1980. but giving basic information and experiences.
Furthermore, as per editor's comments : "beyond the technical =
of raw glazing and oil firing, this personal statement of one potter's =
philosophy of work, aesthetics,
and education is also a testimonial to rural living - how a potter left =
Los Angeles with his wife and sons
to take up residence on a remote mountainside in northeastern Nevada"
Worth every dime of it.
Each page of this book contains more sense than all messages written =
