Dr. William Carty
All workshops scheduled for 2020 have been cancelled due to COVID-19. Please check back in the early fall for the 2021 offerings.
Jump into five days of learning how to formulate glazes you have only imagined in your mind’s eye. This intensive course will focus on discussions, calculations, interactions, and putting to test in kilns, information shared by one of the world’s leading ceramic engineers. We will invent formulas, mix, and test fire glazes. There will be time to discuss applications, share information, and solve those stubborn glaze defect problems. So prepare to come armed with notebooks, pencils, calculator, and dust mask! Beginner and Beyond

William M. Carty is the John F. McMahon Professor and Chair of Ceramic Engineering at Alfred University. He received his BS and MS in Ceramic Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla, and his PhD in Materials Science from the University of Washington. He and his research group have, with the help of many graduate and undergraduate students, conducted research in all aspects of traditional ceramics (clay, bodies, and glazes) primarily in advanced microstructure evolution and materials behaviors. Bill has taken a special interest in the work and challenges facing artists who use ceramics as a primary medium. He has authored or co-authored over 80 papers and is a frequent contributor to NCECA. After almost 20 years of teaching ceramic science to artists, he is slowly understanding (and can speak eloquently, but perhaps ad nausea, about) the potential benefits of applying science to solve ceramic art creation problems.
