      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. Min recently asked a very disconcerting question for me. . . . . So, my question would be, if you could only have one ceramics book what would it be and why? (plus, I’m curious what Pres would choose). Believe it or not, I have thought about this often, in several contexts. You may know that I read a lot of ceramics books, and own many, although Marcia has probably disposed of more that I have ever owned. What you probably don't know is that I am a very avid reader of all sorts of fiction/science fiction/fantasy. So this question has come up often in my mind. I really don't know as I could go with only one. The reasons for only one book would also have to be considered. If my home were on fire, and I had time to pick up only one book, I would probably pick up a 3 ring binder that sits on a shelf with my books. It is magic markered with Glaze Compendium. and is a collection of all of the glaze recipes I have scrapped up from years of Ceramics Monthly, Pottery Making, Clay times, and many others along with recopied ones from probably every book I have ever read on ceramics. I figure with that, I can survive. The other item I would pick up in a hurry would be my current tablet that has many of the fictional books I have read, some 3 and four times on it. Still consider that a book. If having a catastrophic event, like a Yellowstone eruption, I would pick up Michael Cardew's, Primitive Potter, or some other book of which I have a few that are about building a studio from. . . junk, old cars, old machinery and other things. This is a really tough question, one that brings all sorts of other questions to the surface, some of which I hope I never have to answer, let alone ask. best, Pres
