Whether you relish the prospect of glazing your work or exclaim, “I despise glazing!” It’s for you, Amazing Glaze. Gabriel Kline, author and proprietor of Odyssey Clayworks, will take you on a trip that will make glazing less frightening and more enjoyable. Begin in the “glaze kitchen,” where you’ll learn how to set yourself up for success, then go on to studying the equipment and techniques for consistently perfecting your glaze. Gabriel provides hundreds of tried-and-true glaze techniques and combinations for both mid-and high-fire glazes along the road.
Amazing Glaze’s recipes and core processes are only the beginning. To take your glazing to the next level, learn how to layer slip and underglaze, deal with resists, and mix methods. It’s all here, whether you’re looking for crystalline effects, an elusive colour, or a crash course in decal application. You’ll be inspired and eager to get glazing after seeing a variety of artist highlights and excellent exhibition work from today’s best artists.
