Visiting Scholar Lecture with Matthew Katz - FULL

5:30pm to 6:30pm

Location: 

Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

Matthew Katz"Rumor Mill" - This lecture is now FULL

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. 

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

Matthew Katz has taught ceramic materials for artists at Alfred University for over 15 years. He is a working ceramic artist with a B.F.A from Alfred and M.F.A. from the University of Colorado-Boulder and has worked as a Ceramic Engineer and researcher for almost 20 years.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Sign up below!
