It deals with four types of pottery: Japanese raku, English slipware, stoneware and oriental porcelain. With this book, potters can learn everything from how to adapt recipes for pigments and glazes to designing kilns to their local conditions. Primarily intended for practical craftsmen and students, it also appeals to lovers of ceramics and those with an interest in cultural interchange between East and West.
Bernard Howell Leach (1887 - 1979) was a British studio potter and art teacher. He was born in Hong Kong and spent a long time living and potting in Japan, where he learnt the raku style of pottery. On his return to England, he founded the Leach Pottery in St Ives, and went on to teach some of the most celebrated ceramicists of the 20th century.
