This class is designed to demystify glazes in order to expand creative freedom and foster more curiosity and excitement in the glazing process. This six-week course will start with basic glaze chemistry and material science including basic techniques for testing new glazes. From there students will be taught how to mix their own glazes following a recipe and how to approach developing their own glaze. We will also experiment with creating new glazes by mixing existing glazes together and adding new materials to commercial glazes to create unique surfaces. This class will have a small "homework" research component. There will be open studio availability on Sundays, 11am to 1pm.


AUSTYN TAYLOR hails from Rochester, NY. A nomadic artist who creates inspiring works of alienation through the lens of sacred American cartoon tropes, she has shown internationally as well as at art fairs, such as Miami Art Basel and SOFA in Chicago. An Alfred MFA in 2016 has been the catalyst for traveling the world and dozens of residencies, most recently a surrealist houseboat in Sausalito (the SS Vallejo.) She believes there is nothing more brutally honest than working with clay. It is a natural authentic expression of self so influenced by our inner dialogs that our life’s novel is revealed in each piece.
