In Topic: What Were Your Most Successful Pottery Trades?

05 November 2015 - 11:14 AM

I trade consistently for clinical massage and acupuncture - I would not justify such an expensive once a month treatment without being able to trade - and it keeps me in better shape to keep working. Our usual trade is dinnerware (about $60 in pottery retail price for each treatment)- but there are a few requests like a shallow long planter I am working on right now.

I have been keeping my eye out at second hand shops and on craigslist for something similar to what you suggested Clay Lover but have not yet found it. . . guess the search will continue. Thank you

You are in the midwest like me, and if your weather has been anything like mine, the humidity is making it impossible for me to recycle clay in my normal time frame. . . might just be the weather. Don't know anything about the coloring. . . 

In Topic: Qotw: Do You Still Have Your First Piece?

20 May 2015 - 09:47 AM

This is my first piece - made in a hand building ceramics class in college. . . It is a pinch pot made out of terra cotta and has engobe and clear glaze. I have used this as my pen cup through every job I have had since college.
I love it tremendously  :wub: even if it is really wonky.

I woud literally sell one of my kidneys on the black market for a de-airing pug mill. Santa is taking his time about it. :D

I wish pug mills made real pugs... ;)


Perhaps you could apply for a grant to purchase a mixer pug mill - your work and story are compelling. 



Also I have heard good things about Kickstarter helping people purchase larger equipment they couldn't afford right away
