How Many People Here Subscribe To Magazines Like Ceramics Monthy, Studio Potter,clay Ti...

20 June 2016 - 09:41 PM

I was curious to know if people here are reading journals from the Ceramics Field? like such magazines like Ceramics Monthly, Studio Potter, Pottery Making Illustrated, Clay Times or European mags like Ceramics Review, Keramos, Ceramica, Ceramic Arts and Perception, New Ceramics. I was wondering because it seems like perhaps internet resources have replaced these options? just wondering.

The museum there is moving to a larger facility.
This video is from La Nava Pottery. The moved to an updated facility in 1980 or so. They had a 4 story kiln with a freight elevator. Wood-fired. Capacity is about 11,000 pots per load.

Website Development, What Do You Use?

11 June 2016 - 09:14 AM

I spent several hours yesterday adding and refine some of my pages on my website. I have been writing websites since the early 90s and I have to say I am thrilled not to have to write in html.

I tried Sandvox that Chris campbell recommended. I didn't like it. My brain does not work like hers. I later found Go Daddy and their web builder. I can update it easily and edit at will. I had forgotten how to do the links to local pages but remembered this morning. I have fixed a few glitches.
I like being able to organize numbers topics like the how-to pages from the finished examples in the gallery.
Check it out.

If something isn't working, please let me know. Sometimes it looks ok on my computer but is not working when its "out there".

Making A Perforated Kiln Shelf.

05 June 2016 - 03:46 PM

I got about 10 perforated kiln shelves from Euclid's years ago..like 2002. I like to use them in my raku kilns. I really needed a small one for my new little demo kiln. 

You need to keep the bit wet with water. easy. I did have trouble when I had been interrupted and forgot to remove the plug from the previous hole. CRAFT moment.  Other than that it was easy. 

 

Will fire up soon.

Nature's Inspiration

10 May 2016 - 08:57 AM

Montana has inspired many artists by the beauty and environment. Here is a great video on the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse range. It has been inspiring me ever since a hard of wild horses came out of a cloud and surrounded our 2 cars on a clay digging field trip. We decided to continue to the top of the mountain after digging clay. http://www.ofgreatin...d-pryor-horses/
