  5. Good morning everyone. Thank you for allowing me to announce the online workshops available at http://teachinart.com/index.html again. I would like to draw your attention to the class of Marcia Selsor particularly. Unless you are going to attend her workshop later this year in Italy at La Meridiana, this is your opportunity to learn from this highly recommended artist. During this online workshop, she show and tell in detail how she prepare , raku, obvara and two kinds of saggar fired pottery pieces for alternative firing, all conducted in a small raku kiln. Marcia designed and built this little mobile raku kiln specifically for this online workshop and she discuss the making process in detail. Other detailed discussions is about the chemicals she used to obtain results. This is a class that will give anyone that would like to start working with alternative firing a very good kick start, more so because she is available to answer questions right throughout the 6 weeks that the class is online. Other classes currently open are porcelain dinnerware workshops by Antoinette Badenhorst and a beginners pinching teapot class by Antoinette. Connie Christensen will be featured with her workshop in April. Other instructors on the list for 2017 is Nan Rothwell, Paul Lewing, Marie Gibbons and a follow up shino workshop by Connie Christensen. If you are interested in more details, you are welcome to contact Koos@TeachinArt.com As always: we are calling for instructors. Thanks.

  10. I have been busy with these! The group made me think of multicolored stones.I am using old and new chemicals for these. Some of the chemicals have been with me since 1972. They were old then..donated to me from the Chemistry dept.at Southern Illinois University.The little brown glass jars have old labels that look like they are from the 30s. One is a cardboard cylinder.
