Linda Bloomfield trained as a materials scientist before fulfilling her dream of becoming a potter. She has made thrown porcelain tableware in her West London studio since 2003 and sold her various ranges through Liberty and Harrods, as well as to Jamie Oliver's Barbecoa Restaurant and Michelin-starred restaurant The Clove Club. She is a frequent contributor to Ceramic Review and has written several best-selling books on ceramic glazes.
This is a book which I know I'm going to use. Her satin glazes are
particularly appealing, and there are sections on the more
experimental aspects ... I feel inspired by this book and I hope
others will too. -- Mary Cousins * Shards *
If there is a classic among the publications on ceramic techniques, it is undoubtedly this recipe book -- Wladimir Vivas * Infoceramica (Bloomsbury translation) *
