Cone 6 Hands-on Ceramic Glaze Weekend Workshop
John Britt is a studio potter in the mountains of Bakersville, North Carolina, and has been a potter and teacher for 38 years. John travels all over the world teaching this workshop and many others. He is both nationally and internationally recognized as one of the ceramic world’s greatest glaze experts. He is the author of multiple best selling glaze books.
During this 3-day workshop we will make glazes and dip tiles on Friday. On Saturday, we will fire the kiln and discuss all things glaze and on Sunday we will unload the kiln and try to get a better understanding of the properties of glazes through seeing the tiles in a new light.
This 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 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.
