Cone 6 Reduction Workshop at Mud Fire in Atlanta
Just wanted to announce that I will be giving a glaze workshop at Mud Fire in Atlanta June 12 -14, 2009.
(This image is a carbon trap pot from the last workshop there which was made by Vantuil Varges.)
John Britt Workshop Reduction Firing and Ceramic Glazes
John Britt will lead this overview of ceramic glazes and glaze materials, including a Cone 6 reduction firing. Participants will glaze their own bisque pots, review the results of the firing, and learn about glazing and firing through discussion and slides. Many reduction glazes will be available including shino, tenmoku, celadon, copper red, and others.
The workshop will cover characteristics of ceramic oxides and their sources, firing dynamics and principles, and practical application of this information to specific firing cycles. John will loosely follow the format of his new book "The Complete Guide to High-Fire Glazes." The workshop will also include a discussion of the differences between Cone 10 and Cone 6 reduction, and choosing between these firing options.
Class size 20.
