10:00am - 4:00pm


Do you ever think what a mystery glazes are? They don't have to be and this workshop will help you understand more about glazes and glazing. With some brief discusson on the materials that make up glazes, we'll look at some common studio glaze recipes and then break them down a bit to understand what's in them and then look at their fired results. But, you say, your results don't look like the test tiles? We'll talk about why that is and look at strategies to analyze glaze results to consider what the best methods are for choosing and applying glazes. Students should bring some bisqueware as well as some finished work to consider in discussion. There will be a lot of discussion and opportunity for you to ask your burning questions!

What is the best advice you can give when it comes to surface design?
Be inquisitive about everything!

Where do you find inspiration?
I love fabric and pattern. I enjoy the challenge of designing forms that fit the kiln I'm firing in too.

What is your all time favorite part of making pottery?
I love making teapots. Assembling forms and parts that work well together, each choice informing the next one. The assembling of forms whether boxes or teapots require solid handbuilding skills and balancing wheel-work with off-wheel work is quite satisfying.
