This hands-on glaze workshop is intended to introduce you to several approaches to effectively apply glaze to your pottery. Sarah will first demonstrate several ways to glaze archetypal forms like a bowl, cup & plate to get reliable results. She will then explain how to glaze more complex shapes like a teapot or casserole.
Reasons for choosing different application methods will be discussed. These might include dipping, pouring, painting, spraying, layering, scraping and using wax resist. There will also be some discussion of a multitude of other variables that could affect your results including glaze composition, glaze thickness, clay thickness, form & curvature, surface texture, clay body and firing profile.
Students will be asked to bring in one of their own bisqued pieces to glaze and as a group we will discuss the most suitable glaze application method. If you wish, you may also bring pottery pieces with glazes you admire or pieces you are disappointed with so that we can discuss how the results were obtained or what went wrong.
This workshop includes the use of LOAM glazes and firing of your cone 6 piece.
