      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.

anyone ever tried the vertical slab rollers?

Recommended Posts

I have a small studio also, and have seen these at NCECA. . . really intriguing. However, never tried one. I do remember that there was a post a while back (2015) Doc Weathers showed a home made one here:

 

It may be something your friend would be interested in looking at.

 

best,

I have often wondered about this as most slab rollers come out flat and thats the way I use them so I do not have to move the slab much (distort)

In a vertical I think you would have then lay it flat (distort it more?) not sure on this point maybe Doc can clear this up.

The best thing in theory is gravity would make it want to self feed.
