      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.

Gerit Grimm / October 5 / Baltimore Clayworks

WS04 – Beyond the Wheel to Figurine

Gerit Grimm will lead you through the process of throwing, altering and assembling wheel-thrown parts into a figurative menagerie. Her work appropriates narrative subjects derived from historical myth and fables and presents them in forms that have visual and conceptual affinities with contemporary fine art. Grimm’s process utilizes traditional production pottery skills as a vehicle to craft monumental figurative sculptural assemblages that are at once both technically brilliant and dynamic in form. This workshop will include a balance of playful demonstration and candid discussion about process and content.

Gerit Grimm was born and grew up in Halle, German Democratic Republic. In 1995, she finished her apprenticeship, learning the traditional German trade as a potter at the “Altbuergeler blau-weiss GmbH†in Buergel, Germany and subsequently worked as a Journeyman for Joachim Jung in Glashagen, Germany. She earned an Art and Design Diploma in 2001 studying ceramics at Burg Giebichenstein, Halle, Germany. In 2002, she was awarded a German DAAD Government Grant for the University of Michigan School of Art and Design, where she received her MA. Gerit received her MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. She worked at major residencies like McColl Center, Bemis Center, Kohler Arts & Industry Program and Archie Bray Foundation. In 2009, NET Television created Fantasia in Clay, a Nebraska Story about her. Grimm now works as an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. www.geritgrimm.com
