This course explores the chemical constituents of 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 in making functional glazes is that they be food-safe and durable. 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 (for cone 6 electric or cone 10 reduction) 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 provided.
