How to Handle Ceramic Materials Safely
by Jeff Zamek

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

The potter's health and safety are covered in detail from ceramic toxicology to safe handling of raw materials. Guidelines for using clays, 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 professor will refer to again and again while working with clay and glaze materials.

An established author and regular contributor to popular ceramics publications, Jeff Zamek is the owner of a ceramics-consulting firm and has developed clay body and glaze formulas for ceramics supply companies throughout the United States.
