Description
Salt glaze pottery first appeared in fifteenth century Germany, and rapidly became a popular export item. This class will give an overview of the regional styles and period methods of manufacture, followed by discussion of modern recreation techniques (including "faux" salt glazes). The instructor will bring examples from her first salt firing--will they come out looking like she envisioned? Come learn why there's never a guarantee of results with pottery.
