Glazes Galore: Tea Bowls 2016


  • Tea + Art 613 1/2 W 19th St Houston, TX 77008 United States (map)

As a participant in the recent John Britt workshop, I'll have some entries in this great exhibit. 

Reception is July 9th, 3-6p.

Noted American studio potter, educator and author John Britt recently came to Houston and lectured at Lee College Ceramics Dept about his road to creativity and interest in the study of glaze chemistry for potters and other artists.

Based in the western mountain town of Bakersville, North Carolina, the Ohio-born Britt has been a potter and teacher for more than 30 years. Though much of his artistic skill has been self-taught, he has worked and instructed both nationally and internationally at universities, colleges and craft centers like the Penland School of Crafts, where he served as the clay coordinator before assuming the role of studio manager.

A stream of glaze tiles will ribbon TEA+ART's main gallery during the month of July as freshly fired tea bowls will be available for purchase. Kick-off this show with a free wine and cheese reception on July 9.

Britt is the author of several books, including “The Complete Guide to High-Fire Glaze: Glazing & Firing at Cone 10” and, his most recent work, “The Complete Guide to Midrange Glazes: Glazing and Firing at Cone 6.” In addition, Britt has also been a juror for the book, “500 Bowls,” and the technical editor for “The Art and Craft of Ceramics” and “The Ceramic Glaze: The Complete Handbook.” He frequently contributes articles to Ceramics Monthly and numerous ceramics publications, including Ceramic Review; Studio Potter; Clay Times; Ceramic Technical; New Ceramics; and The Log Book.
