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) as well as strength of colors (progression test). 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 20 participants.
