John Britt Ceramics Event

John Britt lecture hosted by Richland College Clay Club

John Britt- book

Friday, Feb 26, 2010
7-8 p.m.
Sabine Hall 118
Richland College, Dallas

John Britt, a well-known glaze expert, wrote the book, “The Complete Guide to High Fire Glazes”. Recently, he has been doing workshops at studios to help them convert their glaze and firings to Cone 6 reduction rather than Cone 10 reduction. This is a much greener process and will save the schools and studios up to 30% in fuel costs.

The lecture will be held at Richland College and workshops will be scheduled during the weekend. For more information please contact Jen Rose at 972-761-6837.
