You’ll learn about:
-the basics of chemistry in clear and simple terms
-how the chemistry and structure of clay bodies affects their working properties
-what makes a stable glaze
-how materials interact in a glaze
-glaze faults and how to correct them
-substitutions for glaze materials that are no longer available
-the glaze unity molecular formula and why it’s so important
