      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 Is The Best And/or The Worst Advice You Ever Received About Ceramics?

Recommended Posts

 

 

However the best advice I haven't received but found on out my own was: After unloading a kiln load, don't immediately hammer something that didn't turn out exactly how you intended. It is frustrating at first and you just want to move on, but sometimes it can end up being marvelous when you run into it later with new eyes.

This is so true! 

 

So many times I felt quite disappointed with a piece, and then came to like it quite a bit seeing it everyday on my table. I guess it's a good reminder to keep an open mind ^^
