Upcoming Workshop in New Jersey
Cone 6 Glaze Glaze Discussion Weekend

September 16 – 18, 2016
NJ Potters Guild
880 Juniper Way Mahwah, NJ 07430
This workshop will be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on but not limited to cone 6 glazes. It is designed for beginner to intermediate potters. We will discuss cones, kilns, safety firing dynamics and principles as well as applying those principles to various firing cycles. This will lead us into some basic classifications of glazes, like ash, celadon, temmoku, etc. We will discuss how and why each type of glaze works and how you can achieve them, how to adjust your glazes and how to find new ones. We will discuss glazes from my new book: “The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes: Glazing and Firing at cone 4 – 7”, but will go into more detail than the book allowed.
John will bring tiles samples from his book research as well as pots.

Sunday 10 to 3 p.m.
