Course on Speciality
Glazes and Colour Development Course

Module B: 4 February -- 5 February, 2018: Lustre
for the Course

Glazes and Development of ColourIntroduction: Students
will learn the structure of glaze and the development of colour in a
variety of glaze types and finishes. The development of the glaze and
colour will be through various testing methodologies for example line
blend, tri-axial blend, square blend & colour blends. The testing
& development program will lead to the student developing their
own palette of glazes. Occupational health and safety instruction is
an integral part of this course.
A: Glaze Theory and Colour Development: 30 January -- 3 February,
course is organized in two modules that could be taken together or
independently. The first module of 5 days on Glaze Theory and Colour
Development would be conducted by Greg Daly and the second module of
2 days on Lustre Glazes would be conducted by Sandeep Manchekar.
Module B: Lustre Glazes: 4 February -- 5 February,
course would introduce students to the fundamentals of glaze
chemistry. It would build an understanding of methodologies used to
create glaze colour-palettes. A hands-on approach is followed for
testing and developing glaze compositions. The course would help in
developing procedures for line, bi-axial, tri-axial, square and
colour blends. Students undertaking the course would be able to
develop a confidence in glaze application, testing and analysis.
