Cone 6 Ceramic Glaze Weekend Workshop with JOHN BRITT : Norfolk, VA
February 3 – 5th, 2023
All Hands Pottery Studio
164 S Military Highway
This is a hands-on workshop where we will make a Color Blend with various bases to illustrate the effect
of oxides in the base and their effect on color. After we dip the tiles and load the kiln we will discuss all things glazes including oxide properties.
The workshop will 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 apply those principles to
various firing cycles. This will lead us to 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.
