  Enroll in Course

After years of working on this project alongside my sculpture practice, I am incredibly happy to share with you the release of MASTER GLAZES.

This course holds my philosophy of surface development activated through in-depth demonstrations that go far beyond a glaze recipe. I have curated the ultimate selection of both commercial and mixed glaze combinations to optimize your process and bring your figurative ceramics and ceramic sculpture to the next level.

It will save you time and strengthen your sculptural practice.
