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.
Ceramicartsdaily.org has thrown their support behind glaze database newcomer ceramicrecipes.org. You can take the tour of this clean looking website that looks similar to pinterest. It has been prepopulated with a fairly small number of recipes with some spectacular photos. (Good luck getting your glaze to look like those.) I've gotten good results with Hannah's Fake ash over the last five years, but never anything as strong as the photo they put up.
I have not seen any mention on CAD of Tony Hansen's Insight-Live online glaze recipe database with it's integrated chemistry calculations and direct connection to Digitalfire ceramic materials reference information. Members of cone6pots are eligible to participate in our group database Insight-Live.
Can you help us scour the Web for the best clay-centric videos out there? Add them to our collection by embedding them on the video page. Who will will uncover the best undiscovered gem? It's very easy to embed any video that is already hosted on youtube.com. Instructions will be posted shortly.
For those of you who like more of a challenge, why not create your own short video covering one of your favorite techniques. Upload it to youtube, and then embed it here.
