Description - Wood-fired Ceramics by Coll Minogue
Wood-firing ceramics have a long history, dating from medieval European and Japanese times. However, it is in the late 20th century that wood-firing has enjoyed a revival that has made it into one of the most active and vibrant areas of ceramics today. Wood-firers are to be found across the world with particularly active groups in Australia and New Zealand, the United States and Europe. In each of these areas, distinct developments have occured which have led wood-firing onto exciting paths. In this book Coll Minogue and Robert Sanderson look at the development of wood-firing ceramics over the last 30 years. They discuss the materials, kilns and firing techniques that have emerged, both for earthenware and stoneware, and they illustrate their text with the work and practices of an international group of artists.
