      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.

  11. I just finished my preliminary peruse of the latest Pottery Making Magazine. The article by Marcia Selsor was an excellent introduction to the Obvara process. Excellent pictures of pots with close ups of textures. A nice, but brief historical background, and a summary of the process. Thanks for your contribution Marcia, great work!
  12. Obvara After Pit Firing

    Tomorrow Friday I will start the long expected Obvara-after-a-pit-fire. We discussed Obvara in a thread of Marcia's already, but now I will try to get a pit (and not a raku kiln) as hot as possible to be able to do Obvara. I started the witch's brew 2 days ago and, on the first day, I got a nice fermentation, 2nd day it was just a liquid mass, today I see fermentation again (lather), but the liquid was never warm (except when I started the brew with warm water). Question: shouldn't a fermenting brew be at least luke warm? The fermentation is a chemical reaction isn't it? And that leads to warmth?! I kept to the known recipe: 10 lt luke warm water 1 kg flour 2 packets of yeast (our packets here in Europe are 10 grams per packet - and yours in the State?) 1 tbl spoon of sugar (I took whitte sugar) Any tips and tricks you can give about the pit fire getting hot enough for the Obvara firing are very welcome! Thanks. Will keep you in the loop. Will go to bed now, it's almost 9 p.m. here. See you tomorrow. Evelyne
