      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.

Heavy Traffic Near The Studio This Morning

Recommended Posts

It's been the weather for buzzards here today. Lots of thermals for them to climb on, wheeling high, making their wonderful, plaintive, keening call. Absolute magic.

I swear I spend more time watching the wildlife than making pottery.

The deer were barking in the woods at dusk last night - a little dog across the valley was answering back!

I hope the fire is not heading towards you,  I also have wildlife around me deer, coyotes, turkeys, herons and lots of birds.  The best part is my dog comes out to my studio with me and hangs around.  Denice

post-1954-0-97747200-1501602269_thumb.jpgWe have fires too, but a cold front comes through tomorrow. No raku until the Fall but I am sagger firing. Also have rabbits and deer. One bear and the moose are said to camp out under our apple tree when the apples get ripe. My cats are inside the studio most of the time.

We have very little in the way of critters here in the center of the little town. My traffic is just that, lots of traffic on the main street, trucks from the paper mill, lots of cars especially in the rush hours of morning and afternoon. Out back at the shop, most of the noise is buffered, and I little company there so the television keeps me company while wedging or doing other menial tasks. When I go to Mansfield to mow, I always keep an eye out for deer and black bears, foxes, and bobcats. Quieter up there, but to isolated for me, and very little in the way of bowling alleys.

 

 

best,

Pres

We have a nasty squirrel the neighbourhood has named red. She taunts my dog by coming down the tree just to tease & runs back up. I get my exercise trying to catch my dog to stop the barking early in the am. We have other squirrels, deer, sometimes raccoons & lots of birds. We live near the edge of the city.

Loads of deer and turkey, cats of course. No traffic, live at the end of a dirt road. Forest and field, let nature rest, no hunting allowed anymore, so the deer aren't as jumpy. We have armadillos now, the raccoons and possum seem jealous. Hummingbirds battle for there turf outside my windows. All I need to do is look up from my work and see....

Snoozing Fox in the garden.

Plenty of these around in the garden too, (although this one is rarer being an aberration, with extra spots).
