Description

With dynamic glaze combinations, there is no rush .... it's all in the brush. This two-night workshop focuses on commercial brush on glazes (Amaco and Mayco) to create dynamic and colourful layering techniques. Because this course is just two nights, there will be bisque-fired horizontal and vertical forms available to glaze. Students may also bring their own bisque-fired pieces if desired. This workshop does not cover detailed chemistry behind the glazing process, nor does it cover dipping and pouring glazes (that’s a different course). This workshop will demonstrate to the beginner potter how to create colourful layering effects using brush on glazing techniques. Specific topics include, types of brush on glaze, base layer glazes, top layering glazes and special effects using fluxing glazes. Both textured pieces and smooth surfaces will be covered as they should be glazed differently, depending on the desired effect. Included in the workshop fee are two free open studio hours in order to finish your projects, if necessary. INSTRUCTOR: Joanne O'Leary of Dollface Pottery & Jewelry
