Dr. William Carty presents Ceramic Science for the Artist
July 10 - 11, 2015
This short course is an introduction to the science and technology of ceramic bodies and glazes. This course is intended for artists to understand some of the underlying chemistry. The goal is to develop tools to predict the behavior of materials to solve problems in the studio. Starting with the basic premise that most “firing defects” are rooted in the making process, this class will demystify the science behind ceramics. Participants are encouraged to bring examples of defects or problems for discussion.
