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.

There are a number of ways to work with repeatable images on clay. The simplest would be to use commercial stencils, which is where the course will begin. Following that will be the use of commercial rice paper transfers. The student will then be able to explore the use of monoprint transfer from rice paper of their own designs to clay. Time permitting, there will be an opportunity to learn ceramic decal making. Small examples of material needed for these techniques will be provided with the opportunity (not required) for the student to purchase larger sized material for the execution of these techniques. Class fee includes 25 lbs. of clay, glazes, and all firing.
