      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.

Making Glaze Tongs

Recommended Posts

Yeh, I know, but I'm just a dope about making stuff.... Got "hot dog" tongs at the dollar store that I'll try to modify. Need the teeth parallel, not like a + to grip object. Been using the same store bought ones for 30 years, but they don't quite work with a new odd shaped pot that is a commercial success.

Don't know the shape of the pot you need tongs for but for shallow things like lids and tiles that you dip more on a horizontal plane plus little itsy bitsy stuff I use filed down staple removers. They are cheap and they work, I just filed down the prongs so they fit on the rims / edges.
