      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. Dear community, I have this wonderful glaze i use for my porcelain cups (slipcasted), BUT its been a long time struggle, as this glaze is sometimes doing fine, but sometimes! it breaks the cups, sometimes it runs, leaving the lip almost with no glaze, sometimes its really nice looking blue, but sometimes its green. I thought some of you might know how to adjust the glaze, as I really really love the way it looks when everything works fine. So the glaze is a crackled blue/green transparent one. Its supposed to be for the cone 6. I applied thick - it breaks the cups, but this time I applied it thin it still broke them and run down to the foot. I also noticed its not as runny when i put it in the lowest shelve in the kiln.. hm, but thats not the way out.. It has 0.54 of copper carbonate Do you have any ideas of how to adjust the glaze so its not that runny. Is it about adding more of Bentonite and Kaolin? Can copper carbonate make the glaze be more runny? it has Neph Sy. Dolomit bentonite flint kaolin whiting + tiny bit of copper carb. Every tip is highly appreciated!
