Katharine Pleydell-Bouverie: A Potter's Life 1895-1985

£75.00

Product description

This appreciation of a highly-regarded artist, one of Bernard Leach's first pupils, contains over 300 glaze recipes for wood and electric kilns from her unpublished working notebooks: the results of some 60 years' experiments with wood-ash glazes.
Of interest to craftsmen and collectors, the book has an introductory essay by Barley Roscoe, Curator of the Crafts Study Centre and Holburne Museum, Bath, setting Pleydell-Bouverie's work in its historical context; a biography by her cousin, her letters to Bernard Leach, and appreciations from two generations of potters.
Colour photographs by David Cripps are a unique record of Pleydell-Bouverie's pioneering achievements, and with the glaze recipes, edited by potter Emmanuel Cooper, provide a rich source of material for modern potters.
