In this Ceramic Arts Daily Presents video, Nan Rothwell demonstrates the basics of glazing and decorating pots. In step-by-step demonstrations, Nan applies glaze by dipping, pouring, and spraying, and then shows a series of simple decorative techniques including tape and wax resist, under- and overglaze patterning, and brushwork. She also looks at a range of pots made by others, discussing the visual decisions each potter made and how they affected the form and design of the piece. Nan also includes material on mixing glazes and a brief appendix on glaze chemistry. Watching this DVD, you’ll learn multiple specific tips for glazing, plus you will gain a larger vocabulary for the elements of design that come into play every time you sit down to glaze your work.
