Online Glaze Calculation Course!

Understanding our glazes is the most powerful thing we can do to make our work our own.
Yet how many of us really understand how our glazes work?

Ceramic Materials Workshop is here to help.
You can take our world renowned glaze calculation classes online, right now.

Designed for ceramicists of all levels, our Glaze Calculation courses will change your studio FOREVER.

​After years of teaching ceramic materials courses in a traditional classroom lecture, Matt Katz developed and designed the Ceramic Materials Workshop specifically for online educational access. These innovative courses have proved highly successful; student evaluations consistently praised Matt for his knowledge of ceramic materials and their applications and applauded him for his concise and personable presentation of challenging technical content. The online format proved exceptionally conducive to robust group interaction and discussion. I highly recommend these classes.

technical tuesday/movie day: forgive me my head is not in the game this week.

So i missed technical tuesday, which can happen…but now i’ve almost missed movie day as well. It’s been one of those weeks where motivation is lacking, brain is elsewhere and things are pilling up on my desk/workbench. So here you go a technical video i shot in the studio earlier today showing my process of painting in the underglaze for my drawings. On bone dry greenware i sketch in pencil, then cover with a thin layer of wax emulsion (no latex), then i carve the lines through the wax with a sewing needle. Paint on the black underglaze, wipe back and voila – ready for the bisque!

Process. Adding black underglaze (@amacobrent) to the carved lines. #canadianceramics #pottery #ceramics
