This is a 3 day hands-on cone 6 electric glaze testing workshop which is designed to familiarize participants on how to test a base recipe and achieve various colors. Open to all levels of experience. Test tiles will be supplied in a porcelain, a light buff stoneware, and a dark stoneware. The workshop will also be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on cone 6 reduction and oxidation. We will discuss cones, kilns, firing dynamics and principles as well as applying this information to various firing cycles. There will be discussion of glaze classifications and conducted in a casual question and answer format which will drive the content of the weekend. Glazes will be discussed in a practical and easy to understand dialog designed to help potters gain an understanding glazes, glaze application and firing. Firing will be done overnight with discussion the next day as the kiln cools and further discussion after the kiln is unloaded.
