This book expounds our philosophy about stepping off the textbook recipe treadmill and learning to understand recipes, control them, be more demanding about the way they work and fire and solve all kinds of problems that are normally completely beyond the average potter or technician. It will help you to develop a �complete quality conscience� and a sense of accountability for the technical integrity of your ware. It will get you excited and open up a whole new world of options if you hunger to know �why�?

In many ways this goes in the opposite direction of both the ceramic industry and pottery community promoting an alternative to the 'know-only-what-you-need-to-know', 'supplier-dependant', and �recipe trafficking� cultures and the easy-fix mentality they foster. More than any other book, it deals in great detail with the application of computers to ceramics. The Magic of Fire shows you how to use FORESIGHT and INSIGHT to solve glaze problems and manage related information; it recognizes that the computer offers new ways of doing things and new viewpoints; not just ways to automate the old. This book also contains clay body testing and formulation information that you will find no where else.

Digitalfire eBooks are in Adobe eBook Reader Format

Adobe Systems is the company that invented Postscript, the page description language that is the magic behind the desktop publishing and font industry. Documents display graphics and fonts exactly as the paper document and in many cases graphics are zoomable to better clarity than is possible on paper. Adobe supplies free viewers for Unix, Windows, Macintosh, and others so that each will display a book exactly the same as the printed version.
