Matthew Katz

I am a ceramics materials nerd and I hope to share my knowledge and experience with you. I have a BFA and MFA in ceramic art, I also have spent 20 years working in ceramic science. I have taught ceramic science for artists at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University for 15 years. My understanding of how artists work and think and the knowledge of ceramic scientists enables me to teach artists to make the most of their materials.

About this course

Ceramic Materials Workshop is a new opportunity to offer world class versions of Glaze Calc and Raw Mats to your university or art center.


CMW classes are taught by people who have dedicated their lives to learning and understanding how glazes work, but also how ceramic students learn. We have taught these subjects for over 15 years at the world renowned Alfred University.  


We have crafted classes that are unlike any other, blending the working and learning styles of ceramic artists, with the knowledge base of ceramic science (translated into English). Our courses will give your students the educational advantages you wish to provide them.
