      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. Hi! I have a very small (tiny) electric kiln which I fire up to cone 04. Currently, I have been bisque firing terracotta and earthenware up to 1100C -1150C then glaze firing to 1060C - as the low fire glazes I have say to only go up to this temp. Results have been pretty good so far. I am aware of the dangers of single-firing (with glaze bubbling, pin holes etc) but now I am wondering if it might be possible to fire both bisque AND glaze together in the one firing - say up to 1060-1080C? What would be the down-side of doing this provided I brought the temperature up to 600C very slowly? I really love your forums - and am very grateful to all the wonderfully generous potters, who so freely share their experience and advice!
