Maybe waiting for the Supremes to have a reunion tour and weigh in on the vote count? Regardless, everything in ceramics is controlled by "Big Clay".

And don't expect "Big Clay" to help out anyone. They still haven't responded to the evidence that clay is addictive, and a gateway art, to other media.

For eons, Big Clay has suppressed medical proof of the addictions associated with working with clay and being a potter. They have employed vast new technologies, like internet forums and workshops, to keep the addicted focused on the latest techniques and pretty pretty frills and glossy surfaces. But, one day, the Truth shall be known and then Big Clay will pay for its transgressions. Until then, we just have to suck it up and pay homage to Big Clay. But our day is coming.

Potters of the World -- Unite and throw off the chains of repression foisted on us by Big Clay.

And, if JohnB wants to post the election results (not mentioning he promised to do this as soon as they were announced at NCECA), feel free to join in the fray.

Hi Mark and All,

 

The election results are always "officially" announced in the upcoming Potters Pages. We did make the announcement at our PC Members Reception at NCECA and the PC Advisory Board web page has been updated so the cat is out of the bag! Marcia Selsor, past board member and past president has been elected to fill our one open board spot. Due to Eduardo Lazo's medical situation, the chair, chair elect, and past chair positions were frozen for the upcoming yeaer. Those positions will rotate next year with an election held for chair elect. This decision was announced to the membership earlier in the year.

Sorry..... I was told to wait until Potters Pages came out before posting here. After the question about it here, OK was given to post them.

Mark,

I like the free 2 tons of clay and the Tesla. As the newest member to the Board, I look forward to working with the current members on ways to expand the benefits.

Maybe you can help with a free trip to the islands?  :)

Thanks for the support. 

Are the Supremes having a reunion????????????? Maybe concert tickets?

 

Marcia

Great so now you NEW guys can tackle the real clay issues 

Heres a small starter list  of top 5 to get the RD going on the big clay issues

 

Self throwing clay

clean hands clay

self firing clay

enough memory built into the clay so there can be NO ugly pots-this one will take a full double blind test

clay that is 98% lighter in the pug form

I'm working on this.  Instead of a de-airing pugmill, I am developing a helium impregnating pugmill.  Details to follow.  ;)

I don't need self-centering clay, but self-raising clay would be great.  I know where to buy self-raising flour, but I'm stumped on the clay.......

Good idea! Years ago, Popular Mechanics showed a prototype design for a bathroom that could be shut up and run like a dishwasher. I would pay a lot of money for one of those. I wonder if a self-cleaning pottery studio would help or hinder my creativity.
