John Britt

This workshop will be a general overview of ceramic glazes and will covers all cones. (including: pit, decals, lusters, low fire, cone 3, midrange, cone 10, wood, salt, and soda.) It is designed for the beginner to the intermediate potter. We will discuss cones, kilns, firing dynamics and principles as well as applying those principles to various firing cycles.

We will be doing a cone 10/11 reduction firing for shino, celadon, and copper red glazes. Please bring 3 – 8 bisque tumblers or cups made of cone 10 clay, (either porcelain or white stoneware) which we will glaze on Friday evening for an experimental firing on Saturday and unload on Sunday afternoon. Email for more details.
