Written by Bernard Leach, the father of British studio pottery, this seminal book is the first treatise to be written by a potter on the workshop traditions handed down from the greatest period of Chinese ceramics in the Sung dynasty. With this book, potters can learn everything from how to adapt recipes for pigments and glazes to designing kilns.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This updated edition of the classic by Leach (British potter and teacher) belongs on every ceramist's bookshelf. Minor text changes, a look at Leach's impact on the West, and numerous color photographs make this an even more valuable resource than the 1940 original.
Highly recommended."--Choice
"This fine new edition of A Potter's Book, first published in 1940, shows representative images of his work (and sometimes his son David's) alongside Japanese or Korean wares made from similar bodies or using similar glazes. It is always easy to spot the Leach."--Times Literary Supplement
