      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 Going To Try Experimenting With Porcelain, But Not Sure Where To Start

Recommended Posts

As a professional hobo, I have limited access to vehicles and it seems that ceramic and clay suppliers are scarce in my area, so I have to do a lot of buying online and have it shipped. I want to try out working with porcelain, but I can't go to a clay supplier and ask questions and then buy accordingly. I've read a little about it online, I think the standard variety of porcelain clay should give me the results I'm looking for. I just can not find anywhere to buy it from.

Any of the clay companies will ship it to you, but it's expensive to ship. The shipping may cost more than the clay if you just get one or two boxes. I use porcelain from Standard Ceramic. The cone 6 #365 and cone 10 #257 are both wonderful clay bodies. I also recommend Helios from Highwater and Babu from Laguna.
