Are you ready to become a glaze explorer? Are you wishing that the glazes on your pots made your soul sing and enhanced your work? Do you want to understand why they work the way they do?

Join us for a 2-day Glaze Workshop and Discussion with a true master in the field. John Britt, a dynamic teacher, will have over 2000 fired test tiles with both reduction and oxidation tiles. We will discuss all things glazes, including a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on but not limited to cone 6 glazes. He’ll also have glazed pots for viewing. This workshop is designed for beginner to intermediate potters.

We will discuss temperature, kilns, and firing dynamics. John will share information about different firing cycles. This will lead us into some basic classifications of glazes, like ash, celadon, tenmoku, etc. We will discuss how and why each type of glaze works and how you can achieve them. We’ll also discuss how to adjust your glazes and how to discover new ones. We recommend that you purchase John’s latest book: “The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes: Glazing and Firing at cone 4 – 7” prior to the workshop. He will teach from this book throughout the workshop. There will be no mixing or firing in this workshop. It is lecture and discussion only.

**Limited registration available.
