We will be exploring forms appropriate for crystalline glazes. The first 4 weeks will focus on creating pieces, the 5th week will be dedicated to preparing your work for glazing and week 6 will be the session dedicated to glazing. This is not a glaze mixing class - glazes will be provided by the instructor. This class is for intermediate to advanced students who are comfortable with their throwing skills.

Every week we will explore a different technique through classroom demonstration, which can then be personalized in your project. We will be working with the extruder (think giant cookie press) at least once during the session and will also explore the extensive glazes in our studio. This is also an independent study for those with previous clay experience.

Elder, Sondra

Our sessions will focus on creating forms that are beautifully suited for altering, piercing, and carving. Students will learn to bring the clay to life using techniques appropriate for their form and style. We will also cover preparation of the pieces for glaze firing - including CRYSTALLINE GLAZING. While demonstrations will be done on the wheel, hand-builders are welcome and will benefit tremendously from the carving, altering and piercing demonstrations.

Beginning students will learn to make smaller, basic forms. Intermediate and advanced students will learn refining techniques to help give their work a more professional look and feel.

Students will also learn techniques for spraying colors, that are not normally achieved in high-fire oxidation, onto their work. If there is time, we will also experiment with reduction gas firing.
