Skill Levels: Intermediate,Advanced
Andy's process for using crystalline glazes puts a high emphasis on consistency and efficiency without sacrificing beauty. Glaze catchers are not needed and there are no surprises when he opens the kiln. Andy will share 4 of his recipes, how he applies the glaze, what firing schedule he uses and other helpful tips. The workshop will include a lecture by Andy, a demonstration and an opportunity for you to glaze two of his mugs and take them home with you. No secret will be held back and you will be able to ask whatever you want! The workshop will also include a printed hand out.
Ages 17 and up.
Andy first learned Ceramics from his father, Ray Boswell, a production potter born out of the American Arts and Crafts Tradition. Andy continued his education at the Rochester Institute of Technology and learned from Rick Hirsch, Julia Galloway and Liz Howe. After college Andy met Phil Hamling, a Ceramic Engineer who had a strong interest in Crystalline Glazes and a more scientific approach. Phil was Andy's mentor and provided the foundation needed to bring everything together and do what he does now.
