I had the pleasure of picking up John's book at Portland's Powells this
weekend... it's a stunner.

Great visual guide to high firing glazes. Honestly, this book with
Vince's is a great substitution for a University ceramics program

I must have been in la-la land when you announced it coming out to the list?

Just thought I'd throw you a clayart high-five,
