    How wonderful to see the first to books you mention are Leach and Nelson. Leach became a mentor for me many years ago even tho he had passed on.
    Might I add the 2 Daniel Rhodes books as well. “Clays and Glazes” and “Kilns”

    • Eric Boyd says:

      Make that “the first TWO books”… ;-))

    • Jan says:

      Eric, I must say, my eyes grew large with wonder when I read what you said! It is truly wonderful to hear that Leach was such a strong influence with you. I did not know this and am intrigued by it. I will definitely add the Rhodes books. Thank you so much and I look forward to further conversations with you here!
