A Little About Us

The CMW founders have a love for each other and glaze chemistry!

Ceramic Materials Workshop (CMW) was founded in 2016 by Rose and Matt Katz. Together they have over 40 years of combined ceramic material experience, both in the field and in the classroom. Their penchant to dive deeper and explore glaze and clay chemistry has allowed them to truly master all types of ceramic materials in a format that is easy for students of all levels to learn.

CMW Consulting 

CMW is here to help!  We specialize in glaze and clay body development but can help with any type of ceramics problem that you may be experiencing.

We can also help with consulting costs!  Our new CMW Consulting Support Program is open to US based potteries and artisans that have been in business for at least 5 years. Types of consulting services available to applicants include formulation of glazes and clay bodies, evaluation and recommendations of facilities to improve manufacturing processes and equipment.

Support the Workshop!

If you didn’t know, Ceramic Materials Workshop is a small business.  Our mission is to provide our community with a solid understanding of their glazes and clay to make your studios the best that they can be.  In order to do that, we do all of our testing, research, editing and production in house.  If you have found our content helpful, please consider supporting our mission by taking some of our online courses or supporting us via our Patreon.
