      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. So GEP this last week, asked in the question pool: If you could go back and start your ceramics journey from the beginning, would you do anything different this time? I am certain that many of you have answers that may have regrets, missed chances, or no regrets at all. However, I am one who seemed to stumble my way through life without a plan. So may be I should have set out more of a plan when I entered college, or graduated or such not. However, sometimes it is about the journey even when stumbling in the dark, that makes us who we are. My biggest regret I do believe is not buying my house with more of an eye towards a larger studio. My studio, is a one car brick garage. It really has a little more against it than that, as it does sit over an underground river, which keeps it even colder yet in the Winter. Now a one car garage, that has a number of power tools for construction, and home maintenance, is pretty crowded, even without the car. However, when you add in the materials for a ceramics studio including two kiln, a CXC wheel, wedging table, shelf storage cart, scales, sieves, hand tools, bulk glaze materials, and other assorted items you have a troublesome area that is difficult to keep clean and dust free. So what I would have done early was look for that 3 car garage when buying a house, and have a little ground around it for yard, kids play and maybe a small wood kiln. Some things you should plan for, others like life itself. . . . they just happen. best, Pres
