Demystifying Glaze and Clay

Details

This class will explore everything you have always wanted to know about the different materials that make up glazes and clay bodies. Clay and glaze formulation, understanding raw materials and ceramic chemistry, how colorants work, and firing in oxidation or reduction at various temperatures, will all be explored. While clay bodies will be explained and discussed, our primary focus will be understanding and formulating glazes. Glaze calculation will be presented along with methods for creating and customizing clay bodies and ceramic surfaces. Students will fire a variety of raw materials, create test tiles, formulate their very own glaze, make line blends of colorants and fluxes and culminate with a triaxial blend of a glaze of their choosing.
