Potters & Sculptors - Making Rock from Mud
~ Ceramic info, tips, and tidbits from our network and beyond ~
HERE ARE A FEW THINGS FROM THE NETWORK
WORTH SHARING THIS MONTH:
SUCCESS IN ALASKA
The 2017 Alaska "Claycation" in August was C6P's first real-world gathering.
From the feedback we received, everyone who participated had a
thoroughly enjoyable experience. Most expressed gratitude for the
chance to meet and work with clay people in such a spectacular setting.
Many thanks to Dot, George, and all those who made it happen.
Perhaps this is the beginning of something good.
With a dedicated studio over half completed,
Dot's place will be even more spectacular next year.
How many of you who missed this years event would want
to go there for a reprise and upgrade?
Do you know of another destination that's just right for
Claycation 2018, 19, or 20?
All that's needed is an activist and a few others to answer the call.
A member shares a link to a quick video.
It shows a cool decorating technique she'd never seen before.
Everybody loves cool decorating techniques.
Check it out here.
Cutlery marks are a devilish problem.
Just ask any potter who dares to chase the elusive, silky matte.
Here, a few members discuss the problem.
Knowledge is shared. Recipes are modified.
Check it out and see...
AND ANOTHER THING!
They say there's nothing quite like religion or politics to get folks fired up.
Apparently, discussing the merits of online sales is right up there, too.
Check out one of the livelier debates we've ever had on the network here.
We laughed. We cried. We shared opinions.
