Jed . . . put the concrete blocks on their side so air can flow through them under the kiln floor.

In Topic: Chip Card Readers. How Do You Like Yours So Far?

so suggesting that there are ATM machines on the next corner is a no-no.

At Art on the Avenue, a person will run into a half dozen potters taking debit/credit cards before they find that ATM . . . and do their shopping at one of them.

‚ÄčThink this is the key point on these readers-all dependent on signal strength.

And encryption . . . the real bandwidth killer.

Yippin 2200 Mica- 325m.  Tech sheet is out in the studio: all I remember sitting here.
The supplier is not a traditional source for the clay arts, and sell in bulk. Not sure forum rules allow me to disclose that- moderators?

In Topic: Competive Juried Shows

Can be a quick way to burn through a lot of money on entry fees. If your work leans toward the "art" end of the spectrum, juried shows are a way to gain exposure and, as Marcia noted, build your resume. Before entering, check the bios/work of the jury/juror . . . and the history/background of the event. Maybe check with prior year entrants. Then make an informed decision on whether or not your work would stand out enough to make the cut. Personally, I avoid them . . . it is not what I'm looking for in my work.
