Cone 6 Ceramic Glaze Weekend Talk/Workshop
January 16-17, 2015
CORNELL STUDIO SUPPLY
8290 N Dixie Dr, Dayton, OH 45414
This 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.
There will be a slide show on Friday night and John will bring tiles samples from his book as well as pots.
Friday 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Meet and greet
Saturday 9:00 – 4:00 p.m. Glaze Discussion, including tile samples and firing, cone, kilns, safety, etc. It is basically a question and answer format that leads us in the direction of the class interest but will be focusing on cone 6 and the book.
Sunday 10:00 – 3:00 p.m. Glaze Discussion
