Safety in the Ceramics Studio: How to Handle Ceramic Materials Safely (Paperback) by Jeff Zamek

Every potter wants to work in a safe environment and needs the extensive data presented in this unique reference.

The potter’s health and safety are covered in detail from ceramic toxicology to safe handling of raw materials. Guidelines for using clay, glazes, tools, kilns, and other equipment are presented. Questions such as "What’s the best way to handle ceramic materials?" and "Is barium carbonate safe?" are answered in full detail. This is the safety guide that every student, teacher, and ceramic professional will refer to again and again while working with clay and glaze materials.

Jeff Zamek is the owner of a ceramics-consulting firm and has developed clay body and glaze formulas for ceramics supply companies throughout the U.S. A regular contributor to popular ceramics publications, he is also the author of What Every Potter Should Know.
