Reasoning / Thinking

Please comment on your tiles. Use 3-4 sentences to answer each of the following questions:
1. Please describe what happened when you layered glazes. Were you surprised by anything that happened? Why or why not?



2. Is there a glaze color on your tiles that you know you wish to use? If not on yours, maybe on someone else’s? How will you have to layer glazes to achieve that color?


3. What is the value of this exercise? What factors can you imagine might affect glazes in an unexpected way?
