This intensive six-week class will explore glaze and surface treatments in the context of the superb offerings available to you in our studio! Learn about basic glaze chemistry and how to interpret the materials we use in our making process. Demonstrations will take place each week with a focus on reactions of materials to clay. All participants will need various bisque pieces to use during this class as we will not be making objects. 6-10 pieces recommended.
