Acknowledgements and Notes Below from 2014
HUGE Thank you to more than 300 artists worldwide most of whom are listed on the link who contributed to this book and to Gayle St. Luise and Greg Funk who assisted behind the scenes with a dedicated demo space, photography as well as me keeping track of the files  the old fashioned way! I had overflow of awesome work that had to be processed- and will keep your beautiful work in mind for another chance to publish it. Publishers wanted more how-to pictures to be substituted in with the art pictures...- as the book had to be practical first.
Despite best efforts....Technical Errata for the first printing 2013 of this book (decimal points in some recipes...) were corrected in second printing 2014. If you by chance have 2013 edition-​​​​​​​ Test suggested recipe adaptations to your local clay/paperpulp there as normal for ceramic practice and review the rationale explained so you can fix it yourself. Despite best efforts- and careful editing under deadline pressure all we could do was reprint.
