Stephen Branfman's new book, 'Mastering Raku', covers everything from the history of raku, to clays, glazes, kiln building, firing processes, and teaching.
It also contains a gallery section, and two images of Catherine's pieces.
One review enthuses, "This is a GREAT book for the new or even experienced raku fan. It is the most comprehensive book that I know of and is destined to be the new raku 'bible'."
500 Raku is a beautiful and inspiring collection of images juried by master ceramist Jim Romberg of the Eagleheart Center for Arts and Inquiry; Romberg headed the Ceramics Department of Southern Oregon University for two decades.
One of Catherine's pieces is included in the collection. One reviewer said, " 500 Raku is an essential book for ceramists and an exceptional gift idea for all art lovers. It's simply exquisite."
'500 Raku' is available through Amazon.com.
