February 18-March 11: Cone 10 Glaze Formulation and Application with Jorge Jimenez
Join Jorge A. Jimenez Jr. for a monthlong course of glaze exploration where you will create your own cone 10 glazes from scratch! In this workshop, you will learn about the different ingredients that go into a glaze, explore how they interact with each other, and create, mix, and test your own glaze recipes with materials provided. We will also spend time playing with glaze layering and application techniques. The science behind glaze chemistry is presented in an accessible, easy to follow way with plenty of time each week for Q&A with Jorge. This is an online workshop taking place on Zoom.
Jorge is the Glaze and Kiln manager at Still Life and has created many of our beautiful glazes. He’s a bit obsessed with glaze chemistry, and he incorporates creative glaze application in his own ceramic practice, with stunning results. Jorge is currently pursuing an MFA at Claremont Graduate University. See Jorge’s work here.
We will be making glazes and firing tiles each week; students will need to drop their tiles off at the Santa Monica studio for firing after each class, and pick them up before the following class so we can talk about your results.
Location: Online (on Zoom)
Dates: First class is on 2/18/21 and takes place over four consecutive Thursdays: 2/18, 2/25, 3/4, and 3/11.
