On today’s episode of For Flux Sake our hosts talk about the coefficient of expansion and its relevance for practical use when planning glazes for your studio. Hint, hint…It’s not as helpful a measurement as you might think. They also discuss the effect of crazing on clay body strength and how to deal with glaze faults when you work in a communal studio.
The image above shows a chart with the thermal expansion of porcelain. One of the points of this week’s podcast is that thermal expansion does happen, but that it’s very hard to measure and put that information into practical use in your studio. Hear the gang talk about why on episode 22 of For Flux Sake.
