      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. Our studio inventory consists of Cone 6 Clay Bodies and Glazes. We use L&L Electric Kilns primarily. Our local suppliers have not kept a reliable stock of Cone 6 inventory and we have started looking into other options. One is Aardvark. They do not seem to supply much Cone 6 Clay and I was wondering to what extent Cone 5 clay will handle Cone 6 firing. To be clear, we would be looking to fire Aardvark, Cone 5 Clay bodies with Cone 6 glazes in our electric kilns until we can either find a reliable source of Cone 6 Clay or migrate our inventory over to Cone 5 Clay and Glazes. Might anyone have working experience in this situation?
