This book deals with ceramic work that does not have a glaze, but instead is finished by other methods such as Burnishing, terra sigillata, engobes, oxide washes, laminating, smoke firing and other methods. The book will look briefly at the historical uses of alternative methods of decorating/finishing work, but essentially will give a chapter to each method, looking at techniques and more importantly the work of specific artists in each field. It will be well-illustrated and a much needed manual on this subject.
