Once you have finished making your Clay piece you will leave your project with me.
I will then let the clay piece dry completely to a bone-dry state. Once the Clay piece is dry it's ready for the the Bisque Firing which is the first firing that takes the clay through a chemical change, transforming raw clay into a ceramic material. The clay is now porous and ready to be glazed.
The Basic Glazing Class is a 1.5 hour class that follows about 2 weeks after you take a Clay Workshop. During the Basic Glazing Class I will demonstrate how to glaze your piece and we will break it down to a few basic colors. Once your piece is glazed, you will leave your project with me and I will fire it a second time which is the Glaze Firing. You will be contacted within 1 week to come a pick up your Glazed piece.
GLAZE BOOT-CAMP (5-week workshop)
If you have been glazing for a while and you are continually frustrated with the outcome of your glazes, or you are struggling to find that color palette or your not sure if you are heavy or light handed, then this Glaze Boot-Camp Class is for you!
If you are just starting to begin your clay journey and have dabbled with glaze a bit but not sure where to start and want to learn more about glazing, then this Glaze Boot-Camp Class is for you!
It took me years to get my glazing mojo on!! Once I started teaching and putting in the time to practice, practice, practice...only then, is when I started to see progress!
If you are willing to put in the time and learn by trial and error, then you too can find your glazing mojo, but you have to do the work!
I guarantee you if you do the work you will see a mass improvement in your glazing technique.
Stephanie is a wonderful instructor! Her studio space is warm and welcoming. She is encouraging and appreciative of all her students' work. I love coming to her studio and I look forward to taking more classes and workshops from her!
She is patience and encouraging. She wants you to step out of your comfort zone.
Stephanie has been sharing her wonderful ideas and endless patience with me for a couple of years now and it continues to be a great experience. She’s knowledgeable and willing to learn at the same time. I recommend her classes very highly!
Stephanie taught a class to our community of potters on the Oregon coast in Manzanita. We learned SO much and continue to enjoy experimenting using the techniques she shared. THANKS Stephanie!
I love her art and she’s such a wonderful teacher! So helpful and encouraging :)
I had so much fun in Stephanie's Coil Pot Class. Her instructions were simple and easy to follow. She was very patient and helpful when assistance was needed as well. I feel very confident that I could repeat this process on my own, event with no prior experience. A thoroughly enjoyable experience!
Stephanie Burton is a positive spirit of creativity. I took one of her workshops recently. Stephanie has an uncanny ability to produce exciting techniques one after the other…I was truly in awe. She is knowledgeable, accessible, encouraging and interested. The hallmarks of a great teacher.
