Studio Potter Journal Volume Eight, Number One  (June 1979), Sabin, Peter; Williams, Gerry (editors)
5 Sabin, Peter; Williams, Gerry (editors) Studio Potter Journal Volume Eight, Number One (June 1979)
Goffstown, New Hampshire The Daniel Clark Foundation 1979 Volume Eight, Number 1 Card cover Very good condition 
Studio Potter Journal which is at least 40 years old. It was only published twice a year. This is the first one for 1979. What's interesting about this one is two articles with photographs of the artist, Bernard Leach, a potter from Great Britain. The first article is "Bernard Leach 1887-1979: Towards A Standard" and the second is "Bernard Leach Two Recollections". The first one can be removed and opened up to reveal on the back a full two page poster image of Leach. Other topics are copper red glazes, producing brilliant copper reds in glass, copper red salt vapor glazes and a lot more about red copper. There are also cameos of various potters, their work, and their surroundings. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 10-1/4" and has 78 pages with many black and white illustrations. The only faults are a bit of sunning to the spine and a small stain to the back cover. Overall very nice
