Join us on for an informative workshop with Ron Roy. In this workshop, participants will learn why the single oxide approach is so useful working with clays and glazes. A variety of problems will be solved using Ron Roy’s Coursebook (provided in electronic format to all participants), as well as computer software such as Glazemaster and Insight. More complex examples will be solved to further illustrate glaze chemistry. Participants are encouraged to bring recipes and fired examples of glazes for Ron to evaluate during the workshop.

The workshop will run until about 4 pm both days, and Ron has indicated that he is willing to stay for an hour after each day to answer any individual questions that participants might have.
After finishing his formal Education in ceramics at the Ontario College of Art in 1963 Ron established his studio in Scarborough. From this time until 1971 he was a studio potter and part time educator in ceramics. During this period he participated in many shows, won numerous awards, executed several architectural commissions, laid the foundation for Rodaco Clay, and served as a volunteer in two major craft organizations. He set up the studio, developed the curriculum and taught at Centennial College continuing education department from 1967 to 1985.
1971 marked the incorporation of Rodaco Clay in response to the community’s need for well designed and quality processed clay. In June 1981 Rodaco was taken over by his partner and Ron returned to the creative life of a studio potter and the task of re-establishing himself in the more demanding discipline of porcelain. After a few group shows he entered the “Perfect Setting” dinnerware show which opened at Government House in Ottawa and won the special Award for Contemporary Design.
Ron is co-author of Mastering Cone 6 Glazes a best selling book on glaze stability.
Ron is currently concentrating on technical writing and consulting to studio potters. He is a consultant to Tuckers Pottery Supplies, formulating clay and maintaining quality control as well as assisting customers with glaze problems. He is also an active member and contributor to ClayArt – an internet group of potters.
