Glaze brewery: Sourcing local materials to produce unique glazes
Monday to Friday, 29th of August to 2nd of September, 14:00 – 17:00 with Anja Slapničar
At high temperatures glaze can be made out of simple one ingredient: low temperature clay. If we start playing around and start exploring, rocks abundant in Austrian lands like dolomite, limestone or calcium can be added to clay and we get a simple two ingredient glaze. This is just a start. Imagine adding other geology and making glazes can become a never ending story.
In this course, you will learn how to develop your own natural glazes, fire test samples and apply your handmade glaze to a bisque-fired ceramic piece that you have brought to the course or a piece made by Anja. Materials and firing costs are included in this course.
Please bring 3-5 bisque-fired pieces made from high fire clay with you. If you have no pieces to bring, please let us know and we make sure Anja has one with her for you.
Course will be held in English.
