Here you go with week 2. These have been proof read 3 times! At the same time, many of you will find these quite easy. Have fun.

 

 

Week 2

  1. A ________________ is often considered to be the peak of the development of pot gauges as it allows the potter to measure multiple widths and depths of a series of pots using the same dimensions thus duplicating the form.

    a. butterfly

    b. bumblebee

    c. dragonfly

    d. caliper

  2. ________________ are tools for lifting pots off of the potters wheel. The Japanese made theirs out of bamboo, and the process looks awkward to me, but then a culture that developed the chopstick for eating may find them easy. Others I have seem made of wood, metal and plastic, the material does not really matter only the efficiency. I personally don't often use them.

    a. cradles

    b. carriages

    c. handlers

    d. calipers

  3. A useful decorating tool that can be used to decorate greenware, slip covered greenware, or freshly glazed bisqueware is the ________________. It is a quick and easy way to create a pattern of parallel 2 or more lines on the pot. Hand made tools of this sort allow for a variety of lines of different spacing and depth. I use them when throwing on cylinders before shaping.

    a. needle tools

    b. fluting tools

    c. stamps

    d. combs

  4. Tools that allow for a series of parallel lines on a pot that appear to be similar to the tool in question 3 but are more of a deep incised process are __________ tools. This technique is very dependent on the form of the pot and the strength of the technique is in the rhythm and repetition of the process.

    a. needle tools

    b. fluting tools

    c. stamps

    d. combs

 

This weeks questions were taken from text in Handmade Potter's Tools, Wilford & Wong, Kodansha International, C-1986.

Huh? Google coughed up About 33,500,000 results; translations seemed to have something to do with the eyes of dragonflies.

I never asked but what where you doing when you lived in The Queen Charlottes? I ask this out of curiosity since I have been there. I chartered a dive boat for a week in the 90's  after doping my Anacortes  art show and dove the inside areas taking underwater photos-Flew into Sandspit and spent a night in small town on other Island before getting aboard the vessel. The world heritage site was really cool. Also the small hot springs nearby was a hit with us cold water divers.

Sorry to say it, but it really doesn't look like too many of you are all the way there yet. Close, but only one with their ducks in a row.
