glazing workshops- coming soon

our studio offers top notch hand mixed glazes.  we take much pride in our large selection.  every beginner student  will learn the basics steps in glazing their pieces.  every time we open one of our three kilns it is like christmas here. here are a few glazing tips you can follow- 

before you begin: when it comes to glazing pottery, do you feel glazed and confused? brush, pour, or dip? there are things like drying time and what clay you should use. before any glaze hits your pottery, there are a few things you need to consider 

1.- make sure your piece is dry and clean.

2. – wax at least 1/4 inch along the bottom of your piece so it does not stick to kiln.

3.  – when using more than one glaze on a piece make sure first glaze is dry before double dipping.

4.  – find your style, do test tiles first what looks glorious on someone else’s piece might not be the same for yours.

5.  – enjoy the process.
