Evocative Surfaces: Exploring and Altering Cone 6-10 Glaze Recipes

Details

This course will focus on how to mix, test, and then adjust glaze recipes within the temperature ranges of cone 6 (2232˚F) to cone 10 (2345˚F) to achieve one's desired aesthetic. The course will begin with a slideshow that consists of a survey of glaze types that can be achieved through testing/kiln-firing. Students will learn basic glaze mixing skills, including how to achieve surfaces such as glossy, satin, satin-matte, matte, lava, and more in their work. Assignments will also focus on how to use colorants and various oxides to alter colors and surface textures.

Prerequisite: Basic glaze-mixing/testing experience is recommended, but not required. Also, be aware that class time will be utilized for discussions, glaze-mixing, and testing. Time to make work will mostly occur during lab/open studio hours outside of class (though this can be adjusted according to the individual student's needs and goals).
