Glazing is many ceramicist’s arch-enemy. Mike Upp is the only person I’ve heard say he makes pots just so he can glaze! In this four to five hour class, Mike will cover everything from application techniques, how to track results in order to repeat the great ones consistently, even how to modify your glazes – in essence, creating new glazes – with only a small amount of material. We’ll also explore how to use slips to change glazes and broaden your color palette. Most of the principals and techniques will apply to Cone 10 as well as Cone 6 glazes.
