New book Science for Potters

I am excited that my next book Science for Potters is coming out soon. The cover shows a pair of Atomic Bottles by Kate Malone, covered with atoms and crystals. The book will cover chemistry, geology, clay, crystals, the science behind colour and glazes. For anyone who would like to know a bit more about the science of pottery.

    I can’t wait to read this and tie in my (ancient) geology A Level!

      Very impressive that you have Geology A’level. Most of what I know about geology comes from reading Richard Fortey’s book The Hidden Landscape.

    Helpful information. Lucky me I found your web site accidentally, and I’m surprised why this accident didn’t happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
