Electric Glazes. Atmospheric Results!
In this workshop, we will explore electric glaze processes and experiment with unconventional stacking to create dynamic surfaces akin to atmospheric firings with instructor Andrew Linderman.
Date & Time
Aug 11, 2024, 6:00 PM – Aug 16, 2024, 12:00 PM
Adamah Art Studios, 4681 Co Rd ZZ, Dodgeville, WI 53533, USA
About the Workshop
Participants will learn basic glaze chemistry, review the basics for making their own glazes from a recipe and perform line-blends to change glaze texture, color and fluidity. By the end of the workshop you will understand how to mix a glaze recipe on your own and modify it to suit your studio practice. As a class, we will explore various application methods, stacking/loading techniques, and processes to create surfaces that imitate atmospheric firing in an electric kiln. This workshop is intended for someone who wants to take the next step with glazes in their studio or classroom. We will focus on adjusting and experimenting with glazes in electric kilns.
Adamah will provide:
- Glaze materials
- Buckets for mixing glazes
- Glaze firing during workshop
Participants should bring:
- 30-40 biwque cups or small (handheld, <4") works to use with application experiments
- 25lbs of clay for making test tiles or test addistional test pieces (clay available for purchase)
- 10 bisque-fired test tiles (we will make more during the workshop), these should be about 1.5-2" wide and 2-3" tall
- A respirator or N-95 mask to use when spraying glazes
- Any brushes or specific tools you would like to use during the workshop
- Boxes and wrapping for any pieces made during the workshop
The pots I create are intended to bring artwork into daily living while enhancing the interactions between food, drink, people, and their community. As a craftsperson, I endeavor to create highly utilitarian wares for people to use, touch, see, and experience on a consistent basis.
My forms are loosely inspired by the natural world. Just like all oak trees are distinguished from any other species in the forest, each tree is also unique unto itself. I find beauty in the diversity that handcrafted works bring into our assembly-line culture.
The realm of function gives me parameters in which I can explore the purpose and utility of each form and how handmade ceramics augment everyday experiences. By considering how the forms are interacted with I strive to help the user get more satisfaction from commonplace occasions.
Food and drink sustain our bodies, but the camaraderie, empathy, and conviviality of good company sustains our souls. Handcrafted utilitarian wares augment the nourishment of food and companionship at a meal or with drinks, and adds a deeper layer of care and compassion. My pottery ventures to make not only the profound moments, but also the mundane actions of daily living, more artful, cherishable and fulfilling.
