Cone 6 Ceramic Glaze Discussion Workshop March 21-22-2020
This 2 day 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.
John will bring his 2500 tile sets to help focus the discussion as well as glazes samples, books, pottery to sell and DVD’s.
