Cone 6 Glaze Discussion ( Clio, MIchigan)
September 8-9, 2018
This is a 2 day Glaze Discussion where John will being his 2,500 tiles sets and talk about cone 6 glazes. Not testing but discussion in an open, no threatening atmosphere of question and answer about all things glazes!! Beginner – intermediate.
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 test tiles and pieces to discuss. We may have a slide show if time allows.
