      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. Mea (GEP) asked the following a few weeks back. . . . Describe a day from your ceramics life that left you thinking "this was a really good day." So many times, I would have good days when teaching. . . . opening up a new glaze load of student pots, perusing their surfaces, the detail of the textures and the solid craftsmanship that the students would put into them with grueling work overseen by me looking over their shoulders urging them on. All came to fruition when opening up that kiln early in the morning before anyone else was there, laying them out on the table so that I could see them as a grouping to sigh. . . . this was what it was all about. Such a good day! Now, my good days amount to being able to throw 60 mugs in a morning, and trim them the next day then add handles. To be able to make the funeral jar with the inner and outer lids so that they fit, and come out of the kiln with not cracks, and beautiful glaze surface that allows the details of the shaping texture to show through. These make my day, and yes, I still get chills when opening a new kiln load and finding so many beautiful surfaces and colors that enhance the form. Yeah. . . good days all. best, Pres
