PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION
publication of the first edition of this book eleven
years have elapsed, years packed full of varied and
that time it has been the pleasant fortune of the author
to conduct classes, especially summer classes, in the
science and art of pottery production. These have been
occasions of meeting many fine and noble personalities
whom to know is a liberal education. As one of the
consequences of these experiences the book has been
revised and some new chapters have been written.
Especial acknowledgments are due and are gratefully made
to Elsie Binns for the chapter on Clay-Working for
Children and to Maude Robinson for that on Alkaline
