I have a skutt 1027, do only ^6, and have been colecting glazes for a couple of years. I attended a SH workshop in March, 2011 where we did ^6 firings. I have mixed several of his glazes for use in my studio and am excited about the potential for better results that the usual ^6.

It is so good to hear from you. Yes, I went to Italy for a course in casserole making and it was fabulous! Then I cam home and two months later my daughter had twins. At this time, I have no workshop plans. I have been working on my own in my studio almost everyday. I had a good selling season and was grateful to have two weekends off for the holidays.

Please stay in touch

So good to hear from you. How is everything? I often think about the time we all spent learning together.

Happy New Year.

martha- i went to a steven hill workshop at the ceramic supply shop in pittsburgh, pa.  it was a great and informative experience.  i asked him specifically if i could add his glaze recipes on this site. his answer was "no".  he wishes at some time in the future to write a book and feels it would be wrong for those of us who paid for his class and expertise to freely give out these glazes.  i think we should respect his wishes and work with them ourselves, but not to give them out to the general public.  i  know this sounds harsh but i think that those of us who attended his workshops should behave as was he wishes.
