in 9th century China, coveted in 17th century Europe, treasured in
19th century America, and neglected by art schools for over 100 years,
china painting is poised for a revival with new materials, new forms
and new imagery. China paint- fired at the lowest end of the ceramic
range- offers consistent, durable, predictable color, from the brightest
hues to the subtlest gradations. Any effect that paint or ink can
achieve, china paint can duplicate. For the ceramic artist interested
in exploring this robust medium to the lifelong china painter, “China
Paint & Overglaze” is the essential text. This groundbreaking
book, the first to showcase the work of traditional china painters
and contemporary potters and clay sculptors together, includes many
unique features on every aspect of an exciting and colorful medium.
… an outstanding compendium on the subject of china painting.
It should become the standard reference book on the subject…
a ‘must have’ book for those interested in this art
John Hesselberth, co-author of “Mastering Cone 6 Glazes”
An absolute feast!... The most complete book I have ever seen on
overglaze, for both china painters and potters.
