Glaze for pottery to be used for cooking

Recommended Posts

I am scheduled to take my very first pottery class next week and I have no experience in ceramics. 

My short term goal is to make one pot that I will use at home in my oven for cooking purposes. When i was growing up back in Greece, I remember my mom using such a pot and I want to make one just like it. 

Is there a special glaze and/or process that I need to use for this? I presume that after the baking the clay pot is porous and cannot be used without some sort of an additional step that will seal it.

Any ideas?

Hi Evagellos and welcome to the Forum!

You might check out Sumi von Dassow's book "In the Potter's Kitchen" where you can find pretty much anything you need to know about what you want to do.

Welcome to the fascinating world of clay and GOOD LUCK!
