I think someone here on clayart mentioned www.campusi.com. They had same
book for $25 used and $26 new( different merchants)....
Campusi is really just a site where it comparison shops for you and directs
you towards whoever is ofering the lowest price.
I just thought it was worth mentioning again.

I have no affiliation wht this person but - Has anybody seen the new "Ceramics - A World Guide To Traditional Techniques" book by Bryan Sentance yet? I came across this new book at a public library recently and checked it out. It was Great in my opinion. so much that I ordered it from Barns and Nobel and now have my very own copy. Not inexpensive ($50) but in my mind well worth it. If interested, perhaps you can get a look at a public library. It is titled Ceramics, A World Guide to Traditional Techniques - library of congress card number 2004101749 - ISBN 0-500-51177-2 .
It covers "everything" lightly with a lot of history, but it especially has many-many great illustrations of pottery and other ceramics, and what was used to create them. Gave me a bunch of new ideas to try. Perhaps some of our expert's pottery is illustrated - or some that is in museuns or collections that you have seen... ????

Hi all !
Just wanted to add one to the list. I just received Fred Olsons
"The Kiln Book" Third edition. I think i just hit gold with this one. There
is more info. in this book than i will ever need. Plus some very
interesting kiln designs. Some look like something from The Beatles Yellow
submarine days (brings back memories) Any one who gets this book will not
regret it. I am going to pick up my metal car-port this week to get busy
and build my first gas kiln. Concrete is seting up and i placed threaded
rod in the slab to bolt port down with. I will send pic's to my photo site
as i move along. This is a great moment in time for me....It's great to
have you guys to share it with.
Thanks, Brian Haviland
