Why do glazes do what they do? Why do they sometimes not do what we hope? What materials go into a glaze and what is it anyway? Begin to answer these questions and more, while learning about the basic materials and dare we say it a little material science, behind ceramic glazes. This presentation is designed to help you begin to "get your head around" the basics of glaze chemistry, without taking a science lab! All with the goal of making more informed decisions when you glaze your work, helping you understand the range and variability of glaze. A great class for all levels of students. Bring examples of fired works you have questions about.
