Glaze Workshop in Sarasota Florida March 13-15, 2015






Mariooch Studio Presents: 

Cone 6 Ceramic Glaze Testing with John Britt March 13 - 15, 2015 Sarasota, Florida 

This is a three day Cone 6 glaze testing workshop designed to show participants how to test a base recipe and get various colors (color blend). It will also be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on, but not limited to, Cone 6 glazes. We will discuss clays, slips, 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 John’s 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. 

The workshop is for beginner to advanced ceramic artists and is limited to 16 participants. 
Friday 9:00 – 4:30 p.m. Glaze mixing and dipping tiles and then talk about glazes 
Saturday 9:00 – 4:30 p.m. Fire an electric oxidation kiln and talk about glazes
