Glazes – Problems and Solutions
Date: July 11, 12, and 15
Time: 1 – 4 pm
Registration Deadline: July 8 @ 1 pm
Location: Thoreson Farm
Successful and consistent glazing can sometimes seem mysterious and be very frustrating. Problems and defects in class are many. In this class we will take an in depth look at the mid-range glazes (cone 6) used at Thoreson Farm, their application, and potential problems to help you gain mastery over the process.
John Huston is the GAAC Potter-in-Residence at Thoreson Farm. John has been a potter for more than 40 years. He studied in Ohio and Japan and started Platte River Pottery in Benzie County in 1978. He and his wife Amy Stevens own and operate Glen Lake Artists Gallery in Glen Arbor. instagram.com/thoresonfarmpottery
Please bring a notebook, pen/pencil, and a couple of your own bisque fired pots to glaze. Some pots to glaze and other supplies are furnished. Please wear old clothes and bring an old towel.
