  1. As promised, it's 30 minutes past midnight on 24 September 2017, exactly three months until Christmas Eve, so here is your next community challenge: Wherever you live/work/play, if you're in Europe, the US or an "ex-British-colony/commonwealth country you can't escape christmas. So this challenge is to create a piece of work that symbolises the christmas season for you. Whether it's religious, non-religious, fantasy, ironic. Whatever. As a devout atheist, for me, christmas is the time when too many people get into debt buying gifts for people who don't want or need them, so I'm going to make a money box, filled with IOUs. What will you make? You have until santa starts his deliveries to put your pictures somewhere. (I'll check Joel's original rules and repeat them here later/soon.)
  2. PQotW: Week 26

    Whoa, I must be losing my brain: ? ? ? ?
  3. new forum, what i dislike

    Just discovered that each comment in a thread no longer has a number. In the past it was easy t refer to a comment 2 pages back by it's number. Any chance of this feature returning?

    Old Lady, please don't go. We need you. WE need you. We NEED you We need YOU.
  5. New Forum

    Yeah, what's the point in "liking" something, if no-one knows it was liked. I've used the "like" in the past to give a thumbs-up to a reply, kind-of-like saying, yes, I agree, but without taking up so much space.
  6. Submit Your Community Challenge Ideas

    I did say, a while back, that I would set the next challenge, which I have failed so far to do. But, watch this space, the non-christmas christmas challenge will be posted on 24 September, giving three months build time.
  7. Least favourite: brush-on-glazing Most favourite: packing the car ready to go to Potter's camp. (And glazing at camp, as there are buckets of the stuff.)
  8. I'm in the UK, and get "this video is unavailable", so it might be more than just location.......
  9. New Forum

    Status updates only show if I ONLY tick Status Updates.. If anything else is also ticked, the status updates do NOT show. And then, when I've looked at a status, and click Unread Content, it goes back to unread topics, not unread statuses (statii)
  10. I've broken as many ^6 pots as ^06. Outdoors is another matter, ^6 needed to get through a (UK) winter.
  11. Wow, three days ago, I had the "most-liked-content" on here!

  12. What Kiln? (UK)

    What Judith said. An electric kiln. And a clear gloss glaze. Go to a pottery painting place and have a good nose around and see what they use. Local place to me use underglazes in large bottles, but I've no idea which brand they use. Just googled to see if I could find a picture I recognised, but no luck.
  13. Teaching Ceramics without a kiln??

    If you will, eventually, have a kiln, there's nothing to stop you making stuff now from real clay. Except maybe storage?
