  1. Hi All, I am looking for glaze book recommendations for beginners. Like most artists I am a visual learner so that would be helpful to take into account. I currently work with earthenware clays so it would need to address low fire glazes. Fortunately I have most of the raw materials in my studio which came in a lot purchased off a former 1970s potter (who also worked with low fire clays and glazes). The collection is probably about 90% complete and even has a few materials no longer being mined - and a number that are now considered unsafe because of lead, cadmium, etc. Of course, I know to be extra careful working with these and to not use them for functional wares. I had hoped I could just start my glaze making experience by following some recipes I have found online and learning as i go along. I now realize that to achieve the best results I need to gain a stronger understanding of the chemistry involved. (I chose physics over chemistry in high school so am seriously lacking in general knowledge of this science to begin with) I would love to get some recommendations from other potters, especially on which glaze making books got other self-taught potters started. Thank you.
