During this two week course our glaze master Angelo Ooi will lead you through all the basics of glaze chemistry from raw materials, to composition and different types of glaze. You will learn how to safely mix a stoneware glaze from scratch and add stains and colourants to bases to create wonderful effects. At the end of the course you will have you own set of glaze recipes and test tiles ready to take to the studio!
***You must be able to attend both sessions on Tuesday 5th July & Tuesday 12th July 1:00-3:30pm.
The cost of this course includes access to Northcote Pottery Supplies’ glazes and raw materials, all tools required, and the firing and glazing of your work.
Angelo Ooi is a Melbourne-based potter and artist. Inspired by his Australian and Malaysian-Chinese background, his forms are elegantly refined. His work reflects the humble nature of ceramics, the care and attention required throughout each step of the process, both qualities which make the work unique and individual. His interest about the technical aspects of ceramics informs his practice, in particular his passion for glazes.
