The workshop will be a general overview of ceramic glazes (focusing on cone 6 glazes – but will cover glazes in general. The hands on portion ow this workshop is designed to show students how to test a base recipe and get color blend and strength of colors/progression test. It is designed for beginner to intermediate potters. John will discuss clays, slips, cones, kilns, firing dynamics and principles as well as applying those principles to various firing cycles. He will discuss 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.
