Relying on traditional techniques and artisan knowledge, we will explore
the creation and application of natural glazes (glazes made from
biomaterials). This class is designed for those who would like to push their
practice a bit further or for those who are interested in a new approach to
glaze making. No experience is required. We will approach our work as
research with a final piece produced. First class will focus on the
background of natural glazes, techniques, and materials. Students will
create their own test pieces and glazes from natural materials that we
have at the studio. The second class will begin the design process of a
final product after evaluation of the resulting glaze tests. The final class
will be application of your chosen unique glaze on your piece. Come with
an open mind and a curiosity to try new things!
