When we understand our materials and how they interact with each other, we can alter our glazes to make them better. Spend less time troubleshooting and more time making!
We explore: a basic intro to glaze chemistry, glass formers and fluxes and how they interact with each other during the firing, why colourants react differently in different glazes, how to determine if a glaze is suitable for functional ware, best studio practices for consistent results, and more
I’m happy to announce that I’ll be presenting on a discussion panel on glaze chemistry called Glazes Without Borders at next year’s NCECA conference in Pittsburgh. Our talk is on Thurs, March 15, 2018 from 4-5pm.
