Textured and Colored Glazes
I focused my honors thesis research on three types of ceramic glazes, lichen, lava, and gloop. These became especially interesting to me after I took a glaze class a few years ago. I decided to take the glaze class because I absolutely hated glazes, but started enjoying ceramics. I didn’t like how with glazes, unlike a painting, I couldn’t see exactly how they were going to look after being fired. I figured I would learn a little more about them so it wasn't a dreaded part of working with clay. Instead, it became what I’ve been most focused on for the past few years.
Thesis completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Alfred University Honors Program.
