    lcar got a reaction from Jennifer5555 in Pugmills   
    I have a Peter Pugger and absolutely love it. I do find though, if I pug anything too long, it loses it's plasticity. For me it's the timing that is essential. It's best pugged just long enough to be thoroughly mixed and no longer. If I do screw up and pug the clay for too long of a time, it's unusable. I will let it rest a day or two and repug it a shorter length of time with a bit of water. This works for me.

    lcar reacted to Steven Branfman in Potters Council At Nceca   
    Hi All,,,,,,,,,I've been meaning to get this out to you since getting home and in the studio from Milwaukee. NCECA was another tornado; it sucked me up, swirled me around, and spit me out. As always, there was a cacophony of activities; panels, lectures, talks, demos, commercial exhibitors, and pots. Of course the highlight for most of us is seeing old friends and making new ones. There was a lot of that. I was involved in meetings with the K12 Exhibition Foundation and I introduced two speakers. That was a new experience for me.
     
    Potters Council activities were high on the list. Our board meeting was productive as we engaged in spirited conversation about member benefits and other pertinent themes that apply to all of our members. The PC juried exhibition was impressive and a major attraction bringing many visitors into our booth.  
     
    Our PC Members Reception was a resounding success. It brought in about 100 people both PC Members and others. The friendly and social atmosphere was palpable. The refreshments were wonderful and the spinning wheel door prize give-a-way was brilliant. 
     
    Big kudos go to Carolyn Dorr for her tireless work as the PC Director. Her ideas and ability to put our suggestions into play illustrates her passion for the mission of the PC and is the ACerS driving force behind the association. Thank you Carolyn!

    lcar reacted to lcar in Do pottery wheels ever go on sale?   
    To each his own, but I must say... I have had great deals on used wheels. I bought a 15 year old shimpo and used it for almost 20 years now, i've added a used whisper, a kick wheel and another Shimpo to my studio as well since then and they all work great and are used almost daily. A belt came of my newest one, and i managed to get it back on by myself. It has been the same with kilns, but the one I did buy new, has needed lots of work, "after" the warrantee was up. of course
