Working With Glaze

Ted Camp   I-A
Thursdays 9:30 – 12:30

Interested in making your own glazes? This course explores the chemical constituents of glazes in non-technical ways. Knowing what a chemical contributes to the glaze formula is critical in choosing chemicals that provide the surface or color a student is looking for. Another important area of concern is that the glaze needs to be food-safe and durable in its use. Students will receive a special computer glaze calculator, which will help them to see when a glaze is properly fluxed to produce a durable surface and will help them to know what it will look like before the glaze is made. Students will make glazes and adjust them to produce desired results.
