Finishing Follows Form: Glazing and Firing
Just when you thought you had mastered working in clay, along comes glazing. In this workshop, students explore techniques, present strategies, glaze wares and load a kiln, all on the first day. Conversations concern creative potentials for successful glazing strategies. There are lectures on basic glaze formulations and kiln-firing systems. Risk-taking is encouraged to develop a more personal and meaningful artistic voice. There are demonstrations on both hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques, as well as lots of tricks and tips for glaze application. Students are asked to bring 10 to 12 pieces, bisque-fired to cone 06 with a minimum 2” diameter and a maximum 9” height. Tumblers, vases, cups, pitchers and small sculptures are ideal.
