      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. my last purchase from Highwater clay had to be returned. the clay was so bad that i could not use it. they think it was just wetter than normal and replaced it. the new clay is still bad, not impossible just very, very bad. in 3 hours, i made 2 pieces. normally, in that time i would have filled 5 shelves, using several bags of clay. these two came from a one inch slice from one bag. i will have to constantly watch them as they dry over several days. this is totally NOT normal. i have asked if their suppliers might have changed and ingredient but i have had no response. Jennifer is usually helpful but i have not had an answer to the last 3 emails. i am wondering if anyone else has had a problem. i use little loafers, another potter who has noticed a problem uses a different name clay but has the same problem, not as bad since she throws. please contact me so i can try to find out the solution.
