Welcome to The Potter’s Round Table, the topic today is An Introduction to Glaze Testing.
One way to learn how to fix problems with your glaze is to understand what each ingredient does and how it affects the final glaze. This mini-series on glaze testing will explore a simple glaze recipe and how to determine what part each ingredient in the glaze plays in the fired glaze result. Through a series of changes to the glaze recipe, focused on a single ingredient, we fire the different glazes and inspect the result in a process that can be repeated on any glaze recipe.
At the end of the presentation there is a short Q&A session.
The Potters’ Round Table is a production of Washington Street Studios. As a result of the pandemic the Round Table is hosted as a YouTube livestream event and then edited to be added to our video library.
