Looking to elevate your pottery and really dig into the details of refining and perfecting your glazing process?
Also known as “the devil is in the details”, in this workshop I show everything I do post bisque to create elegant and refined surfaces on my pots. Sanding, glazing, colour inlay and more are covered! This is a great companion to my Layered Surfaces Workshop.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by all the steps and decisions you have to make when glazing and finishing your pottery? Looking for some strategies for making it less overwhelming?
In this virtual workshop, you will learn:
- All the finishing steps and details that go into making elegant and refined pots.
- How to wet sand work to create smooth and polished surfaces
- Inlaying coloured underglazes to make the details pop
- Strategies for applying wax resist to minimize annoying drips
- Different ways to apply glaze to help streamline your process and reduce issues
- Additional ways to add underglaze after the bisque stage, and other ways to differentiate your pots.
And as a bonus, I’m also including these lessons free of charge:
- A PDF download of my White Slip and Clear Glaze recipes (for use at cone 6 and under)
- A PDF download of my firing schedules
- An overview of all the tools I use most in my studio
Note: this workshop is different from my Layered Surfaces workshop. This workshop is exclusively about the steps that I take after I have layered slips and underglazes on my work, and before the work is glazed. Also known as “the devil is in the details”. The step-by-step process of how I create my signature Layered Surfaces is available here.
