A Systematic Approach to Glaze Development

- Location: Binns-Merrill Hall, Room C
(10:30 AM - 12:00 PM)
and Recent Research into The Importance of the Lime Eutectic in Developing Cone 6-8 (Reduction) Glazes.

Date: Dec. 2
Location: Binns-Merrill Hall, Room C
Cost to Attend: Free/open to public

Anyone who is involved in developing their own glazes will quickly discover that from a few ingredients, an endless number of combinations can be made, but only a few offer usable results in the traditional sense.

From the beginning of my own glaze research, I was fascinated by this and wondered if it was possible to uncover the underlying logic to what makes glazes work. Based on my findings in recent years, my current research, and my study of technical ceramic literature, I concluded that I could track the underlying logic of cone 6 - 8 glazes.

I have always been interested in this temperature range because it offers glazes with high durability, a fairly large color range and suitability for the outdoors. When I was asked to teach this fall semester at Alfred University, I thought it would be a good opportunity to go deeper into this research.

Linda Sikora, was enthusiastic about this idea and generously offered equipment and materials. At this moment in time, I’m quite convinced that the lime eutectic plays a highly critical role for cone 6-8 (reduction) glazes, and I believe this eutectic can be used as a starting point for developing glazes within this temperature range and higher.

"Windows of Vulnerability"
Lauren Gallaspy, Hollis Hammond, Sara Parent-Ramos

The three artists in this exhibition approach the idea of vulnerability in different and often contradictory ways, with delight, aggression, and acquiescence. Yet all three explore psychological and physical stability through accumulation and obsessive mark making, creating works that operate in a liminal space between acceptance, resistance, and capitulation.
