      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.

Qotw: What Movie Best Describes Your Adventures In Clay: And Why?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

Glazenerd posted a question in the question pool asking: What movie best describes your adventures in clay: and why? 

 

This one I will have to think about for a while, off the top of my head it is like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, constant chaos, questing after an elusive end, where in the end you seem to end up where you started.

 

'Mmmmm?  Guess I have to think about this a little more.

 

 

best,

Pres

Does Norway's Slow TV count?

 

If not then I would like to believe its "Fast and Furious" but then its most likely "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".

 

This is so confusing

Terri" there are two classic scenes in Blazing Saddles: if you are thinking of either>>>. I'm telling!!!

 

When I first started in clay:  "Field of Dreams".... I was full of hope and possibilities.

 

After a few years it was: Forest Gump... seems like I kept fumbling through until I found success.

 

The last two years: " A Beautiful Mind".. I wake up in the wee hours with clay talking to me..... someone book me on Dr. Phil please!

Thelma and Louise.

 

I'm Thelma, my wheel is Louise, and my studio is the car. We took a wild trip past a point of no return, so we just kept going.

I just signed up for an expensive ceramics course.

 

In light of this, I will most likely be enjoying a legume based cuisine for some time and perhaps in the same rarified atmosphere as depicted in the fine dining scene of the film, Blazing Saddles.The course is to be taught at a small western community reminiscent of the charming village seen in the movie. As a bonus, this pure & natural form of nourishment that I shall be living on enhances my creative impulses, helping me to produce pots that exhibit a  sensation of warmth in design emanating from the base and enveloping my creations ever upwards.

Snatch

 

Because I feel like I am in a movie with so many story lines that will hopefully all come together in a masterful ending eventually. AKA: I have to much stuff going on at once.

 

Working on that now.

Soylent Green, The Road Warrior, and Sleeper (woody allen).

 

Also a bit of the Little Mermaid, just for variations of color and it always makes me think of the "greatest phone message of all time" which I will link here if you want to hear it and the story about it:

 

Warning: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/203/recordings-for-someone?act=1#playThis has nothing to do with art and has some friendly cursing, it's also a great radio show if you don't know that already and you should listen regularly. ^_^

Celine and Julie Go Boating

 

Magical, compelling, mysterious, profound with an unfolding narrative which repeats and subtly reveals its secrets, little by little. For me, utterly astonishing.

 

A Winding Trip Reverberates in Cinema

 

It’s not just that the film holds up to repeat viewings; its very point is its seemingly infinite repeatability, its mysterious capacity to surprise both first-time viewers and those who know it as well as a magician reciting an incantation.

Mine would have to be "This is Spinal Tap" ....

always searching for the entrance to the stage and always set on 11.

 

 

.... later ... how strange that my reference to a cult classic should stop this thread!!

C'mon, every artist is set to eleven!
