John Britt Cone 6 Two day Ceramic Glaze Workshop
April 29-30, 2017
Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This is a 2 day Glaze Discussion Workshop. There is no testing. John will bring over 2000 tiles that have been tested and we will discuss all things glazes.
It will also be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on but not limited to cone 6 glazes. It is designed for beginner to intermediate potters. We will discuss cones, kilns, firing dynamics and principles as well as applying those principles to various firing cycles. This will lead us into some basic classifications of glazes, like ash, celadon, temmoku, etc. We will discuss how and why each type of glaze works and how you can achieve them, how to adjust your glazes and how to find new ones. We will discuss glazes from my new book: “The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes: Glazing and Firing at cone 4 – 7”, but will go into more detail than the book allowed.
John will bring tiles and samples of glazes on pots.
