Currie Grids

From Ian Currie:

The Grid Method is a structured way of looking at and experimenting with glazes. It is a “recipe method”, which means we do not need to have any deep knowledge of chemistry or mathematics to understand and to use it. It deals systematically with the main variables, which stated simply are:

  1. The glaze recipe
  2. The clay body
  3. The firing
