The review of Rye's book by Robert Sanderson is published in the Journal of Australian Ceramics 50/3 Nov 2011

Quote" If you are a student of ceramics, it provides a valuable insight into a creative process that thrives on chance and an aesthetic  of inperfection, if you are a collector of ceramics, it offers a window through which to view and gain understanding of contemporary Australian woodfired ceramics"

Robert Sanderson is co editor and publisher of The Log Book. An international journal dedicated to wood-fired ceramics.
