Pottery - Understanding Glazes

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Pottery - Understanding Glazes

Course Code: ARTS0347

The complicated subject of glaze technology will be made simple by learning easy-to-understand, basic principles. The choice and role of raw materials and their characteristics will be studied using line blends and other experimental methods to create various effects including texture and colour responses. You will be introduced to computer glaze calculation software as a tool to determine percentage and unity formulas so that glazes can be analyzed, compared, altered, new glazes formulated and glaze faults identified and corrected. Although you will work in Cone Six Oxidation, the universal principles learned will apply to all glazes and temperatures. Actual glazes will be tested and time permitting, projects of individual interest will be initiated. A maximum class size of 12 ensures individual attention.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
