Description

May 18,19, 20, 2018, 10:00am Friday - 3:00pm Sunday

Fee: $525 (includes lodging, meals and workshop fee)

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. The hands-on portion of the workshop involves mixing test glazes and firing them in oxidation as well as in reduction atmospheres - cone 6. Each person will be assigned a specific test glaze and will make their own set of test tiles. The group will compare and contrast all the test tiles through discussion and display.

There will be a slide show on Friday night and John will bring tiles samples from his book as well as pots.
