Review quote

The book is a good, even exciting, read. Daly's intense character shines through every page. It is enjoyable reading, especially chapter one where the author explains all aspects and strings together all the possible things that can occur in a firing and why different kilns give different results. It's not easy to sting all these happenings together developmentally and hold the reader's interest. But he does. -- Frank Hamer * Shards - South Wales Potters Newsletter *
