      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.

I'm currently in my second year of college (one year at community and one year at Memphis College of Art) and am starting to consider transferring- hopefully for the last time! I chose MCA because of their photography program, but when I changed my major to sculpture with a concentration in ceramics I realized I'm not super impressed with the program. I'm looking for a school where the focus will be studio classes rather than liberal arts, and I prefer making functional pieces to conceptual/sculptural. I love Raku firing and other experimental/alternative techniques, like printing photos or carvings onto clay. Does any of this make you think of a specific school, or several I could look into? If you need more information I'm happy to help, thank you for your time!

Central Washington University is that kind of school as many state schools. Check out the professors work and talk to him or her. Utility should be obvious from their work and look at what the facility offers. The Appalachian Center for Crafts in TN has a rocking facility! Look at costs also.

if you area Tennessee resident and looking for in state tuition, then Mufreesboro had a good rep and you can not beat the Appalachian Center at Tennesse Tech in Smithville.

As Stephen says, look at the instructors, facilities and program. Visit the campuses and talk to students. That is the best source for information but sift through that info carefully.
