Sometime ago I postedan MFA thesis by Frank Vickery on oil spot glazes Oil spot thesis, some of which are amazing. I have been corresponding with him about such things. He has been extremely helpful. He will be running a workshop at John C. Campbell folk school in Brasstown, NC September 22-28, part of which will cover oil spot glazes. He tells me that he will be demonstrating the use of test tiles to do a line blend or progression blend to show colors. He plans to mix a couple as well as bringing some already mixed to experiment with.

Besides oil spots will be dealing with the full progression from making to finishing pots. You can see some of his stuff if you search "Frank Vickery pottery" on Facebook
