    Matthew Katz"Rumor Mill"

    Matthew Katz is the instructor of our Summer 2018 course Glaze and Clay Body Chemistry.

    We'll discuss, explore, and destroy some of the common ceramic myths. We will discuss topics such as "No, opening your kiln early does not cause crazing" and " Gas escaping from your clay can't cause pin-holing. Physics doesn't work that way." as well as others. We will wash away the nonsense, and fill you with optimism and information.

    This lecture is free and open to the public.
