|EXAMPLE OF A GLAZE CLASS SERIES FOR MEMBERS OF GREEN VALLEY RECREATION|
| Begin your path to fear free glazing by discovering how glazes interact and various application techniques, tipsthat will help improve your ability to make glaze decisions on your own. Includes demonstrations,practicing on sample pieces, and choosing glazes and ways to apply them to your own pots.
Bring 2 to 3 bisque pieces to each class. They can be a combination of small simple sample pots or plaques and tented tiles for testing and at least 1 of your favorite potsto glaze in class. Just make sure you have at leat one smooth and one textured piece for classes1, 2 and 3. Also try to make most pieces with light colored clay, but mix in a few made with darker ones so you can see how the clay body effects the glaze. For your textured pieces I recommend a combination of textures created by applied high relief designs, deeply etched or deeply impressed methods so you can see how the glaze looks on both high and low points. If you do not have enough pots made then bring only flat plaques or tented test tiles for practicing techniques. You can contact me for help making pieces for the classes.
A Detailed Supplies List can be obtained from any GVR office when you sign up for the class.
