>Ian Currie's approach to understanding glazes has been mentioned many times
>on Clayart. Students who have studied his method learn how to expand a
>glaze palette and develop an ability to interpret glaze testing results.
>Central to his approach is an appreciation of the vitial role that alumina
>and silica play in color response, maturity, crazing and glaze surface
>effects such as mattness, shininess, orange-peel, as well as opalescence,
>opacity and color-breaks. These effects are studied in this hands-on
>workshop that uses "mass production" techniques and cooperative division of
>labor. Workshop participants test multiple variations of glazes over the
>two days of the workshop. Fired results are analyzed the second day.
