Ellen has broken her arm and cannot do any pottery until at least next year.

Reduced Lustre Masterclass

Regrettably we have had to postpone this workshop as Ellen has broken her arm.

Reduced lustre pigments are applied to glaze fired pots. They are fired in a gas kiln and reduced. Once cooled – about 18 hours – the pieces are scrubbed to reveal the lustrous surface.

Here are some of the topics covered in this masterclass workshop:

  • application of lustre pigments, either brushwork or slip-trailing
  • discussion on which shapes and patterns are useful to encourage the formation of haloes in lustre firing
  • packing of the kiln, with attention to placement of pigments in either cool, medium or hot zones, also tightness of pack and firing program
  • scrubbing off & polishing after cooling
  • recipes for and the making of pigments

This masterclass will be run over two Sundays 9:30am – 4pm both days

SUNDAY 20th and SUNDAY 27th JUNE

A schedule and list of requirements will be sent to registrants

This workshop is not suitable for beginners.
