Spend the week attending a glaze chemistry course at Aarhus Art Academy.
It’s been a deep dive into the culture, history, geology and chemistry of clay and glazes – in theory and practice. With a lot of glaze experiments, burned to low and high temperatures. And something totally new to me: Burning with both reducing and oxidizing atmospheres. In one kiln – at the same time!
A very intense week full of new inspiration, insights and ideas – and with a wide collection of samples to take home for further processing. Not to mention the networking and good company with a team of skilled and wonderful colleagues. A highly recommended way to spend the winter holidays!
