John knows glazes.
He can talk in elemental notation and explain things to everyone, including beginners. He's also quite funny. He approaches glaze formulation with a lot of knowledge and a lot of humor. The combination keeps us non-chemists from getting information overload.
The last time I attended a John Britt workshop it was only a one-day lecture and it was centered on high-fire glazes (cone 10). This time it was based on mid-range firing (cone 6).
You can get both of his glaze books here:
The Complete Guide to High-Fire Glazes, Glazing & Firing at Cone 10
The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes: Glazing and Firing at Cones 4-7
