Glaze Induction

I have always wanted to have a go at firing and glazing and now I finally am! Today I have booked in with Matt the ceramics technician to do a glaze induction. I grabbed my recently fired ’tiles’ and after learning about the glazes, had a go myself. I was interested in painting my own patterns onto the tiles and did so using a base glaze that Matt had already made, then painted onto it using stains, which came in a powdered form, but once mixed with water, created something like watercolours. Soon, I will attend a kiln induction workshop which will mean that I can fire these pieces again to make the glaze take effect.
