Kilns - Design, Construction and Operation, Daniel Rhodes
4 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.

The History of Clocks and Watches, Eric Bruton
7 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.

The Chinese Potter: A Practical History of Chinese Ceramics, Margaret Medley
17 Margaret Medley The Chinese Potter: A Practical History of Chinese Ceramics
Phaidon Press 232268 London 1999 Reprint 071482593X / 9780714825939 Softcover Very Good Condition China has the longest and most highly developed ceramic tradition in the world, encompassing early Neolithic earthenwares, the finely glazed stoneware pieces of the Song period - widely regarded as among the greatest ceramics ever produced and years' worth of Imperial patronage and export ware for the new markets of the West. Margaret Medley's classic groundbreaking study is the first to bring a practical approach to the study of Chinese pottery. She makes full use of archaeological reports to show how differing geographical areas, materials and developing technologies all shaped the evolution of Chinese ceramics. Her revolutionary insights, along with an astute critical judgement in the field of art history itself, combine to form a definitive but approachable account that of the whole history of Chinese pottery. 288 pages.
