Textured Glazes with Todd
Todd Hickerson will offer a hands-on workshop featuring Mayco’s new Magma and Mudcrack glazes, along with Cobblestone and Crystal Glazes. These unique textured glazes give cracked or cratered surfaces, that are ideal for sculptural or decorative pottery. The surfaces range from "snakeskin" to "lava rock" textures.
