The Art of Glazing: 1 Day Glaze Workshop with Mike Upp

The Art of Glazing with Mike Upp: 1 Day Glaze Workshop

December 4th, 2021: 9:00am – 4:00pm
$75.00

In this 7-hour workshop, we will cover everything from application techniques, to testing and tracking results, so you can re-create glazes and techniques consistently.  We will discuss how to modify your glazes- in essence, creating new glazes with only a small amount of material.   Almost all of the ideas and techniques will apply to Cone 10 as well as Cone 5/6 glazes. This workshop is definitely not technical and is designed to get people excited and positive about glazing. Here is an outline of some of the topics to be covered:

  • Great potters of the past, on whose shoulders we stand.
  • What makes up a glaze?
  • Measuring Specific Gravity to ensure the glaze stays on the pot and not on the kiln shelf.
  • How to significantly expand your glaze palette without increasing the number of glazes. Using slips, engobes, washes, and combining glazes to help achieve that goal.
  • An overview of glaze faults and what to do about them.
  • Demonstration and discussion of numerous approaches to glaze applications and techniques.
  • The importance of testing and tracking your results – learning a straight forward methodology for tracking.
  • Most Important – Applying some of the techniques learned in the workshop on your own pieces.
