3-Day Glaze Testing Workshop Cone 6 Electric San Antonio TX
Feb 1-3, 2019
Roadrunner Ceramics in conjunction with Alamo City Pottery Workshop is sponsoring a three-day cone 6 glaze testing workshop with glaze guru John Britt. The workshop, for potters of all levels, is designed to show how to test a base recipe and get various colors (color blend).
This is a 3 day hands on TESTING workshop where we will run Color Blends with various cone 6 base 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.
Tiles will be made ahead of time and we will mix glazes and run tests on the first day, fire the second day and discuss results the final day.
John will discuss glazes from his 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.
Cost is $325 and attendees are responsible for bringing a 500 gram scale accurate to 0.1 gram, an immersion blender , and a NIOSH Dust mask or respirator. This workshop is limited to 30 attendees and is sure to sell out, so sign up now!
