Glaze Workshop near Rochester NY
Understanding Glazes and Firing
Folk Art Guild of Rochester NY
August 3 -5, 2012
This workshop will be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on but not limited to cone 10 reduction. 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 shino, copper reds, ash, celadon, temmoku, oil spots, etc. We will discuss how and why each type of glaze works and how you can achieve them. We will also fire a cone 10 reduction firing for celadons, shinos and copper reds.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at email@example.com for more info.
