      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.

Cute Fox Bowl Wip (As Requested)

Recommended Posts

This bowl measures about 10" across and 3" tall. It's for my fella, who fancies himself a fox with corgi colors, and has a fondness for tea and coffee. ♥

Main colors are Duncan EZ and Mayco Underglaze. Blacks are Clay Art Center's baltic black A and Amaco's black velvet (watered down for shading). This is greenware, Clay Art Center's X-Tra White.

I've been drawing since I could hold a crayon. :) My grandma was a huge influence in my artistic upbringing... she used to cut out pictures of animals in magazines for drawing references. She was so awesome...

I took my first ceramics class in 2003, but I was a strict handbuilder. The wheel and I were notttt friends. :D I didn't touch clay again until 2008, and it was pretty life-changing. My work was handbuilt at first, but the next year, I had a tantrum and the wheel and I slowly became friends. :D I tell you, I worked my rodent butt off for it, too!! I wasn't one of those "natural potters" who pick up throwing like a second nature; it was a REAL struggle for me. There was gratuitous swearing, growling, stomping, and clay-throwing involved!! But, five years and HOURS of practice later, voíla! I can make pieces that are functional and have pretty paintings on them. :) Learning the art of underglazing was pretty frustrating, too...what works, what doesn't... That's why I try'n be as helpful with underglaze topics as possible!
