An independent ceramic artist needs to know how to develop and fix glazes, and how to remedy faults. Join Ben to go that next step in learning about a variety of ceramic materials and the chemistry needed to develop and test ceramic glazes. Another aspect of glaze chemistry is knowing when to substitute materials. Gerstley Borate is an unnecessary, expensive, and unreliable material. With a little math, we can easily replace it with other suitable options. Prerequisite: Students should be familiar with basic glaze mixing
