Inspired by the crystalline glazes on display in Balancing the Cosmos: Works by Li Hongwei? Come listen to Robert Morris, a local artist and expert, who also uses this challenging glaze technique. After his early retirement, Morris began exploring art. He was hooked on ceramics after one class. Many more classes followed and he discovered crystalline glazes. The sense of depth and wonder of the crystalline glazes captivated him. Opening the kiln after a crystalline glaze firing is an adventure that can yield spectacular results — or sometimes, dismal failures. Morris will review the crystalline glazing process, show examples, and discuss various influences on his work.
