À propos/About

This is a 3-day hands-on cone 6 electric glaze testing workshop which is designed to show students how to test a base recipe and get various colors. On Friday we will be preparing test tiles with a base glaze and ten colorant variations. We will fire on Saturday in the cone 6 electric kiln and then on Sunday we will discuss the results when they are unloaded from the kiln. 

The workshop will also be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on cone 6 glazes, reduction and oxidation. 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. It will be conducted in a casual question and answer format which will drive the content of the weekend. Glazes will be discussed in a practical and easy to understand dialogue designed to help potters gain an understanding of glazes, firing and glazing. 

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” as well as his High Fire Book, but will go into more detail than the book allowed. 

For participants driving to the Rozynski Centre, we ask to please bring your triple beam scale or digital scale, because one scale will be needed per 2 participants. Please let us know if you are able to bring a scale.
