Kilns - Design, Construction and Operation, Daniel Rhodes
12 Daniel Rhodes Kilns - Design, Construction and Operation
Sir Isaac Pitman and Sons Ltd 232098 London 1969 0273403192 / 9780273403197 Hardcover Good Condition Fair 'Without a knowledge of the action of fire, the potter's craft would not exist,' and it is that action which Daniel Rhodes thoroughly explores and explicates in 'Kilns.' In writing this book, Rhodes has drawn upon his own understanding of firing processes, as well as information which he has gathered from sources throughout the world. The first section of the book traces the development of individual kilns, stressing their firing principles and their strengths and weaknesses. Beginning with primitive firing methods, Rhodes moves on to the evolution of kilns in China, Korea, and Japan, and then discusses the history and growth of Europeans kilns. The principles and methods involved in kiln design and construction receive a thorough and authoritative treatment. The information which applies to the structure and size of any kiln, be it gas-fired, oil-fired, wood burning, or electric, up draft or downdraft, is the basis for discussion of methods and procedures required by specific kilns. Thus, all of the aspects of kiln construction and design... masonry construction, fuels, burners, and combustion, refractory materials, heat retention, and transfer... are covered. One section is totally devoted to kiln operation. Firing theory and techniques, temperature measurement and control, and safety precautions are among the areas covered. Many original kiln designs, accompanied by step-by-step instructions and diagrams, enable those who wish to build a kiln to proceed with both knowledge and confidence. The book is illustrated throughout with numerous drawings, diagrams, tables, and photographs. 240 pages. Dust jacket has rubbing and small tears to edges and corners and associated wear. Dust Jacket price-clipped. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

500 Years of Italian Furniture - Magnificence and Design, Enrico Colle (Editor), Anna Maria Giusti (Contributor), Christina Acidini (Contributor), Cristina Aschengreen (Contributor), Fausto Calderai (Contributor)
17 Enrico Colle (Editor), Anna Maria Giusti (Contributor), Christina Acidini (Contributor), Cristina Aschengreen (Contributor), Fausto Calderai (Contributor) 500 Years of Italian Furniture - Magnificence and Design
Skira 227782 Italy 2009 8857200531 / 9788857200538 Hardcover Fine Condition Fine New - Still sealed. An original, American-style comparison between two parallel universes, separated in time but both Italian: that of classic furniture - which first developed during the humanist era of the sixteenth century and flourished with the innovative thrust of eighteenth-century and Empire furniture and that of design from the latter half of the twentieth century with the rediscovery and reproposal of a series of unique and unrepeatable projects. With text in Italian. This exhibition catalogue shows the evolution of taste in the Italian and European courts from late mannerism through to the first decades of last century. Writing desks, tables, beds, chairs, thrones, mirrors, vases, and objects made of or decorated with precious materials, such as gold, silver, semiprecious stones, or mother of pearl are reproduced in the book. Detailed captions assist the reader in understanding and appreciating the technical craftsmanship of engravers, cabinet makers, bronze workers, as well as the creative genius of architects, such as Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Filippo Juvarra, and Pelagio Pelagi, at the service of the courts. A volume that collectors, scholars, and enthusiasts of the decorative arts cannot miss, it's an essential book for anyone interested in the evolution of aesthetics and style through the ages.

The History of Clocks and Watches, Eric Bruton
18 Eric Bruton The History of Clocks and Watches
Orbis 228544 London 1979 0856130796 / 9780856130793 Hardcover (in Slipcase) Fine Condition Fine The measurement of time was one of man's earliest obsessions, and the desire for ever greater precision in time-keeping has inspired generations in the fields of mathematics and science. Equally, each advance has produced accompanying works of great craftsmanship that have turned objects of sober function into things of outstanding beauty. Eric Bruton traces the path of this development from the simple shepherd's dial made of clay, through the rush of horological activity that followed the invention of the pendulum in the mid-seventeenth century, to the perfection escapement developments that form the basic principles of the complex electronic circuitry of our clocks and watches today. Combining specially commissioned line drawings, magnificent colour illustrations and a lucid, authoritative text, this book offers the reader a wonderful catalogue of man's achievement in the fields of science and art. 288 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Antiques & Collectibles::Collectibles; Antiques & Collectibles; ISBN: 0856130796.
