• Project Title: Ceramics: A Study into the Effects of Oxygen on Glaze Composition

  • BASIS Advisor: Joshua Winter

  • Internship Location: Greenwhich House Pottery

  • Onsite Mentor: Adam Welch

During my senior project, I intend to analyze and discover the hotspots in the kiln. I have secured an internship at Greenwich House Pottery, during this internship I will be loading kilns, mixing glazes and clay. When loading these kilns I will be strategically placing my pieces/test tiles in the kiln. I wish to see the differences that the kiln position can make on a final look of a piece. I have been working with ceramics for over a decade and I have intentions of following this into college. My study should help clarify some of the factors that make gas-fired pieces unique.
