How Much Testing Or Tweaking Of Glazes Do You Do?

Today, 07:04 AM

How much testing or tweaking are you doing? Do you use software or making educated guesses. Ian Currie's grid process is a good example of getting lots of info from simple alterations of materials.

If you are using software. What software are you using? What are you firing? What are you striving for?



Where Is The Line For Intellectual Property Rights Vs. Copying Others

14 July 2014 - 07:53 AM

With several threads relating to this issue where does the line get drawn between copying and an artist's right to their intellectual property right. Do you respect that line?
I think it can be a hard call when so many people do workshop and willingly share their knowledge. Others work hard to develop a marketable process and don't want to share. How do you determine the difference?


Does Your Dominant Hand Dictate Form Or Are You Ambidextrous.

07 July 2014 - 12:11 PM

Much discussion goes on here about being left handed or right handed and needing wheels in the correct direction. I am dominantly left-handed, but I work with both hands. My left hand is on the inside when I am throwing. I still feel in control. Wheel goes counter clockwise.
I have been throwing since 1967 or 47 years. I am convince you need control in both hands to throw.
Can anyone share their thoughts on this for those newbies who worry about the direction of the wheel.

This may continue the discussion of why he smash a pot from antiquity, but his philosophical concepts on ceramics belong in this topic.


What Is Your Throwing Position?

30 June 2014 - 08:55 PM

The question should be What IS your throwing position. Couldn't edit it. Sorry. I am building some new stools for my studio after studying Pietro's at La Meridiana. I will paint them tomorrow and add a cushion. The cool thing about these stools is a storage bin under the seat, adjustable height in the legs, AND if you reverse the lid , the angle is good for your back.
So my question of the week is: what are you sitting on when throwing? Got any clever tips for back aches?
