What The Heck is Glaze Chemistry All About? 

Sharon Art Center Campus of New Hampshire Institute of Art

 

Professor John Baymore

 

This one day, seminar-type workshop will provide participants

with a basic understanding of the core concepts

that can impact the creation, use, and evaluation of

ceramic glazes for studio use. The instruction of the

widely popular ceramic chemistry calculation software,

Insight, and its priciples will be presented. Troubleshooting

of fired results, “food-safe” qualities, health and safety,

legal requirements, and ventilation concepts will also be

touched upon. Handouts will be provided to all participants.

Students are encouraged, but not required, to bring

a PC or Mac laptop to test out a trail copy of the Insight

software.

 

Prerequisite: Intermediate ceramics skills.

Limit: 15

Sometimes I WISH I was living in the U.S. - with access to courses such as this. I've spent hours looking for a ceramics course here in the UK that includes the theoretical and chemistry side of things, but to no avail! There are a few short courses covering various ceramics techniques but precious little else. I'm a retired 59 year old and would love to take a formal ceramics course - something more structured than the standard adult education evening courses - pinch pot, coil pot, slab building, throwing - work at your own pace......... If anyone in the UK can point me in the right direction I'd be really grateful.

John . . . opportunity calls. You and NHIA should offer one of those massively open on-line classes on glazes. Reach audiences around the world. Crash the internet bandwidth. Etc.

Seriously, an idea worth thinking about. Fills a void.

I was reading with my mind elsewhere and I saw "Manchester" and sat up and read it properly, then slumped back.

The US, we fought for, then celebrate our independence from Britain, then promptly named a bunch of our cities after towns there.

I lived in Manchester for a while, just not for the U.K., or even New Hampshire for that matter.

But you would have had metric maths, much easier!

If you're from Manchester (England) you are a Mancunian.
