      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.

  2. The Cochise College Pitfire is a Ceramic Arts event held annually on the Douglas Campus. It is an evening of art, fun, and food with performers from around the region, the culinary arts students preparing soups, and family-friendly interactive arts activities all centered around a huge pit fire filled with ceramics. This is a free, public event. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Cochise College Pit Fire!! Once again, we are inviting Ceramic artists from around the globe to participate in the firing and exhibition. Artists are asked to submit by mail a bisque-fired piece of Ceramic ware “dressed†for pit firing. Boxes will be placed directly into the firing pit, unopened, and fired during the event on the evening of October 14, 2016. While dressing and packing your work for shipping, please remember to consider national and international material shipping restrictions and also firing safety. We ask that your cushioning material be something that will not only protect your work in transit, but also benefit the firing technique. Please avoid all plastics-based packing mediums, and concentrate on those that are safely combustible. We will place boxes in the pit with the mailing address facing up, so pack your work accordingly. Participants are asked to email a digital photo of their work to thompsonpfauv@cochise.edu with information including the artist’s name, location, media/type of clay, dressing materials, and any other pertinent information so that pieces may be identified correctly post-firing. We also ask that you include your mailing address in the digital materials so that we may send you a thank-you gift. Finished pieces will be photographed and placed in the Pit Fire Exhibition on the Cochise College Douglas campus gallery, as well as displays on the Sierra Vista campus. Invitational pieces will be auctioned off to benefit the Cochise College Art Department Fund. Digital photos of the finished work will be returned to each artist via email, as well as posted on the event website at http://www.pitfirefestival.com.
