The focus will be on understanding the materials in some of our studio base glazes with limited prior knowledge of glaze chemistry. This class is perfect for anyone with little or no experience with glaze chemistry. We will make test tiles, mix line blends, and explore glaze combinations and additives for cone 5 and 10 firings. Build your skills and have fun with this hands-on, group sharing glaze class.
