      Moderators needed!   12/08/2017

      Ceramic Arts Network is looking for two new forum moderators for the Clay and Glaze Chemistry and Equipment Use and Repair sections of the Ceramic Arts Network Community Forum. We are looking for somebody who is an active participant (i.e. somebody who participates on a daily basis, or near daily) on the forum. Moderators must be willing to monitor the forum on a daily basis to remove spam, make sure members are adhering to the Forum Terms of Use, and make sure posts are in the appropriate categories. In addition to moderating their primary sections, Moderators must work as a team with other moderators to monitor the areas of the forum that do not have dedicated moderators (Educational Approaches and Resources, Aesthetic Approaches and Philosophy, etc.). Moderators must have a solid understanding of the area of the forum they are going to moderate (i.e. the Clay and Glaze Chemistry moderator must be somebody who mixes, tests, and has a decent understanding of materials). Moderators must be diplomatic communicators, be receptive to others’ ideas, and be able to see things from multiple perspectives. This is a volunteer position that comes with an honorary annual ICAN Gold membership. If you are interested, please send an email outlining your experience and qualifications to jharnetty@ceramics.org.

  1. Thanks Tom and Neil, I'll just fire with the 208's until they die. I will get a replacement set to have on hand. I doubt I'll fire more than every other month, not much time to make stuff with a full time job + side jobs. Jilly
  2. [ Thanks Neil, that's what I had figured. I will commence with frying! Jilly
  3. On the topic of 208V 1P cone 10 kilns, I recently purchased a used Skutt 1227 with this configuration. I will be firing it on 240V. From what I understand after speaking with a Skutt tech it should work fine, but the life of the elements will be reduced. I was hoping to fire it a couple of times before replacing the elements (with 240V ones), I will be firing to cone 6. Do any of you see a problem with this? Should I just bite the bullet and change the elements before firing it all? Thanks for any advice. Jilly
