The book I chose for sawdust firing in a dustbin is:

The Complete Potter:
Sawdust Firing
by Karin Hessenberg. ISBN 0-8122-3301-8 She writes of the relationship
between form and smoke, body stains, slips and lustres, fuming,
saggars, resist techniques in firing, sawdust kilns, terra sigillata.
Beautiful pots pictured, also.

Who doesn't usually refer to trash cans as "dustbins," but just loves
the sound.
