Stoneware (Ceramics Handbooks)
Stoneware is a hard, strong, and vitrified ware, usually fired above 1200 C (2192 F), which allows the body and glaze to mature at the same time and form an integrated body-glaze layer. During firing, the organic matter found in clay is burned away, the color changes, and a layer of glass is fused onto the surface. The quality of the glaze owes much to the establishment of this layer, and it is therefore the glaze quality that determines a ware's acceptance as stoneware. Such high firing can achieve qualities and finishes that appeal to many potters; however, firing clay at such high temperatures imposes particular demands on the clay, glazes, and kilns. In Stoneware, Richard Dewar discusses the various considerations that need to be taken into account when working at higher temperatures and shows the myriad techniques and glazes that can be used to achieve excellent results. Including the work of Sandy Brown, Will Levi Marshall, Robin Welch, John Calver, and other internationally known artists, this handbook is the only one available on this increasingly popular subject.

The Art of German Stoneware, 1300-1900: From the Charles W. Nichols Collection and the Philadelphia Museum of Art
The Art of German Stoneware, 1300-1900: From the
Beautiful and eminently useful, stonewares produced in the German-speaking lands from the Middle Ages onward were highly valued for their durability and suitability for a range of domestic and social uses. Widely traded throughout Europe, they were also among the first European ceramics to reach colonial North America. During the Renaissance the addition of brilliant salt glazes—s well as relief imagery that communicated with the user—raised the status of these wares. Later examples introduced abstract floral or geometric decorations and more unusual, original forms, which retained broad cultural significance.About ninety fine stoneware pieces from the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a promised private collection testify here to the success, artful decoration, and fascinating variety of this medium. Jack Hinton describes the developments in stoneware through these notable examples, and beautiful color images bring their details vividly to life.
