3rd Annual “Off Center” at Blue Line Arts, Roseville, CA
An International Ceramic Art Competition
Deadline: March 1, 2019
Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE and pottery vessels that
were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000 BC, people have been fascinated with clay.
Northern California has a rich history of talented ceramic artists from Robert Arneson to Peter Voulkos. Blue
Line Arts is excited to showcase the innovation of ceramic techniques and vision from around the world during
this annual show. Ceramic artists who want to share their vision of ceramic art are encouraged to apply.

3-Day Cone 6 Hands on Glaze
Testing Workshop Fresno
California

March 15-17, 2019

Hands On Glaze Testing – Cone 6
This is a 3-day hands-on cone 6 electric glaze testing
workshop which is designed to show students how to test a
base recipe and get various colors. On Friday we will be
preparing test tiles with a base glaze and ten colorant
variations. We will fire on Saturday in the cone 6 electric kiln
and then on Sunday we will discuss the results when they
are unloaded from the kiln.

The workshop will also be a general overview of ceramic
glazes, focusing on cone 6 glazes, reduction and oxidation.
We will discuss cones, kilns, firing dynamics and principles
as well as applying those principles to various firing cycles.
This will lead us into some basic classifications of glazes, like
ash, celadon, temmoku, etc.

Friday 9-5                           Clay Hand Studios     
Saturday 9-5 and                660 Van Ness Ave.
