Demystifying Glaze

Demystifying Glaze: Winter 2023
Julia Haft-Candell


In this introductory course we will discuss the history of glaze, its color, function, and chemistry. We will look at surface vs form, and how these variables affect the way your work conveys information within the context of ceramic history as well as the broader contemporary art world.
