Is anyone here trying to have a social or political stance through their work? Or is it something that is not part of the picture?

@Judith B

I think I will eventually employ my social stance in my work. But I am not good enough yet. One of the reasons I have been testing gold decals. I plan on eventually having political and social stance decals that I drew myself on my work. But it will be years before I employ them.

well Pres and Marcia, it's maybe a given that your responses will be liked!

I do use paper, latex and wax resists and I guess texture.so only the high bits get caught by new colour application

 

never used shellac, what's involved with that?

I do resist getting drawn into the is it art or craft debate..

I've found some links describing the pottery easel in an earlier photograph.  It seems that people have them made.  Here's a link with lots of photos and dimensions:

Here are some secondary links, refrencing that first one

Thanks! That answers a lot of questions. Just one more area of concern - is the turntable free-turning (having trouble figuring out how) or does one have to release the top to turn it? Can it be turned without touching the pot? Or having the pot fall out (eeek)? 

I think this could be used for carving too with the technique used for the mug. Insert a taller cylinder (I'm thinking pvc, but custom sizes could be thrown and bisqued) into the piece to be held. 

On resists, I'm still using water-based resist. I like to add oxides or stains for different effects. Especially with iron ox and cobalt carb, the resist allows the colorant to be applied evenly.
