This course explores the chemical constituents of glazes in non-technical ways and 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 test 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.
