Working With Glaze Chemicals, Ted Camp

Ted Camp   I-A
Thursdays 9:30 - 12:30

This course explores the chemical constituents of glazes in non-technical ways & would interest any student who is interested in making their own glazes. 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 for students making functional glazes 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 their own glazes and adjust them to produce desired results on test tiles. Time will be spent applying test glazes to test tiles, and not constructing work. No clay will be provided.
