I "grew up" on "A Potters Book"....... it was the 'bible' when I started clay.

I agree with John, the Potters Book was a Bible. I reread it when I started working with oil burners and that part made sense the second time around after experiencing clinker buildup from poor combustion. That helped tremendously in redesigning our oil burner adaptation with three nozzles. The burners were published in the Studio Potter Book in 1973!
Thank you, Sir Leach.
