      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.

What The Heck is Glaze Chemistry All About? 

Sharon Art Center Campus of New Hampshire Institute of Art

 

Professor John Baymore

 

This one day, seminar-type workshop will provide participants

with a basic understanding of the core concepts

that can impact the creation, use, and evaluation of

ceramic glazes for studio use. The instruction of the

widely popular ceramic chemistry calculation software,

Insight, and its priciples will be presented. Troubleshooting

of fired results, “food-safe†qualities, health and safety,

legal requirements, and ventilation concepts will also be

touched upon. Handouts will be provided to all participants.

Students are encouraged, but not required, to bring

a PC or Mac laptop to test out a trail copy of the Insight

software.

Sometimes I WISH I was living in the U.S. - with access to courses such as this. I've spent hours looking for a ceramics course here in the UK that includes the theoretical and chemistry side of things, but to no avail! There are a few short courses covering various ceramics techniques but precious little else. I'm a retired 59 year old and would love to take a formal ceramics course - something more structured than the standard adult education evening courses - pinch pot, coil pot, slab building, throwing - work at your own pace......... If anyone in the UK can point me in the right direction I'd be really grateful.

John . . . opportunity calls. You and NHIA should offer one of those massively open on-line classes on glazes. Reach audiences around the world. Crash the internet bandwidth. Etc.

 

Seriously, an idea worth thinking about. Fills a void.

John, 

sounds great!. Have you considered offering as an e-seminar? I am sure you would have an audience..

I was reading with my mind elsewhere and I saw "Manchester" and sat up and read it properly, then slumped back.

The US, we fought for, then celebrate our independence from Britain, then promptly named a bunch of our cities after towns there.

 

I lived in Manchester for a while, just not for the U.K., or even New Hampshire for that matter.
