Potters & Sculptors - Making Rock from Mud
Crowd-sourcing information and learning for mid-fire ceramic artists.
George Lewter, founder of the cone6pots network, is looking for a little working space, temporarily this winter in someone's studio in the area between north Ft. Meyers and the south side of Sarasota. Want to work a couple of days per week. Can help out with studio upkeep, glazes, firing, etc. Will also pay rent. Leave me a message if you or someone you know might be interested.
Message from Tony Hansen of Digital Fire, Insight, and Insight-Live
Using a group account at Insight-live.com, we are working together to create a data and knowledge base of cone 6 glaze recipes. Individual members author, classify, link and code number new recipes (or variations/adjustments on existing ones) using interactive tools. Then, as an ongoing group program, we document them with notes, keywords, comments, picture-posts and test results. Members can analyse and compare multiple recipes (and their calculated chemistries) side-by-side, research materials and oxides (because it is directly connected to the Digitalfire materials database) and print reports and mix tickets (of any batch size). Coming soon are post-sharing to popular social sites, inter-member messaging for individual recipes, a public facing database, project support and specific-recipe-sharing features.
We have over 800 recipes in ongoing development, your cone6pots membership gains you access. Simply go to the Insight-Live Users group and click the Join Group button. Your I-L login info will be emailed to you. -TH-
