Appeal for Supporting Memberships

Updated July 22, 2014

A clear majority of our members responding to the 2014 member survey believe we should receive financial support to maintain and upgrade the cone6pots network. How to accomplish that proved more controversial. It appears that a combination of minimal paid advertising, and a voluntary paid membership system similar to public television and radio is the least problematic for our members. . 

Thanks to the more than 100 members who have contributed in the past, the cone6pots network is up, running, and providing this uniquely interactive space geared to mid-fire clay artists.

This is our once-a-year drive to fund the cone6pots network. For the cost of 2 lattes, you can do your bit to keep us going through the first half of 2015. Please become a supporting member, or renew your supporting membership, if you haven't in the last year.

Visit our Supporting Membership Page to make your $9 payment.

Purchase Glazes Cone 6 by Michael Bailey, The Potters Book of Glaze Recipes by Emmanuel Cooper, or Making Marks by Robin Hopper, all available at amazon.comMastering Cone 6 Glazes by John Hesselberth & Ron Roy is now out of print.

Harbor Freight is a great place to find unbeatable prices for better HVLP spray guns and serviceable economy models, as well as detail guns, all tested by our members for spraying glazes, as well as compressors to power the guns. As yet no one has tested and commented on the remarkably inexpensive air brushes at harbor freight.

The critter siphon gun is a spray alternative that is well liked by some of our members, and is available at amazon.

Amazon is also a competitive source for photo light tents for shooting professional quality pictures of your work. They also have the EZ Cube brand favored by several of our members. You might also want to purchase the book Photographing Arts, Crafts and Collectibles . . .

Following are a few scales useful for potters. Your final price could be less or more - things change.

American Weigh Black Blade Digital Scale, 1000g X 0.1g $11.08 

For the non-digitally inclined the old standard Ohaus Triple Pro Mechanical Triple Beam Balance, 2610g x 0.1g, with Tare $169.00

And finally a low cost clone of the OHaus. The Adam Equipment TBB2610T Triple Beam Mechanical Balance With Tare Beam $99.62

ebay is a great alternative for many tools and the equipment used in the ceramics studio - kilns, wheels, extruders, slab rollers are often listed there both new and used.

Tips-of-the-Week

If you just want to spout off, it is best accomplished as a blog posting. If you want to get more guidance and ideas from other members, ask a question as a new discussion topic. 4/16/2014
