      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.

About Me

I live in possibly the most beautiful city in the World, Cape Town, South Africa. I spend almost every day either melting glass (beads) or slipcasting ceramics. I am also being taught by a master modeler how to make my own masters and molds. I often incorporate my glass beads in my ceramic ware, and where possible, I try and make the beads a functional design aspect of the ware.

I have no formal art/design training, and used to be a RN for many years. About 5 years ago I gave it all up and started to 'work' full time at my craft. 3 years ago I started to play again with clay, after a 20 year hiatus.

I have taken part in our regional juried ceramic exhibition, as well as showing/selling my work at South Africa's premier designer week, Design Indaba.
