How to glaze for perfect results
Live Online Workshop with Steven Showalter
Live Q&A starts in:
Hi, my name's Steven Showalter.
And in this workshop, we are going to talk about glazing.
Specifically spraying glazes.
I know for a lot of people that work with clay, perhaps the most frustrating part is that finishing step - applying the glaze.
It's fun to fill up a ware-cart full of pots, but anxiety-inducing to finish them.
So I'm going to guide you through how I create some of this work here.
- I'll give you a step-by-step guide to spraying glaze.
- I'll talk about glazes in general, and give you some resources too, so you can start to make your own glazes.
- We'll talk about equipment - what you need, and what you don't need.
- And then we will also talk about firing - both bisque firing and glaze firing, and some of the things you need to know to have successful glaze firings.
This is a workshop for both beginners and more advanced potters and professionals. Hopefully, I will give you enough information so that you can learn and translate it into your own work.
You don't necessarily have to spray your work, although that's what I am going to be talking about. Some of the stuff can easily be translated to dipping and brushing. So hopefully there's a lot of bits of information that you can pull and put into your own practice.

About Steven Showalter
Steven Showalter is a Potter and High School Art Teacher located in Eagan, Minnesota.
He creates functional pottery that pairs modern design with traditional form and exhibits a strong dedication to quality craftsmanship.
My work is inspired by my wood-firing experiences. I’m captivated by the rich and unpredictable surfaces of wood-firing and achieve similar qualities in my electric kiln by relying on glaze choices and application methods. I apply my glazes by spraying on thin layers of glaze that create a rich color palette of runny glazes that mimic my natural surroundings. I also use texture as a way to create unique patterns within my work.
All of my work is food, microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe.
