Community Challenge #1

Yesterday, 07:26 PM

Welcome to the community challenge #1


This is a place where we can challenge ourselves alongside other community members to create ceramic works within the constraints set out in each challenge.


The Challenge


This challenge is to make a piece(s) of ceramics that has been influenced from your research into the sky and/or the atmosphere. Your research can include anything that fits into the topic.

Pick an area within the topic that interests you and would like to explore. 

Try to be creative with your research and how you translate that into an idea for your ceramic work. 

No specific item needs to be created for this challenge so the choice is up to you. Good luck.


The Rules

  • Everybody can enter the challenge, all you need is a registered account on the forum.
  • Work in progress (WIP) images are encouraged. It can help to talk through your research and ideas but please don't spam the topic. Keep the updates informative and succinct.
  • One final entry per community member with an image no larger than 1024 pixels wide.
  • Upload your image to your galleries and attach to the entry post or use the attachment uploader within the post editor. If you don't it may not make it across to the results thread.
  • Only attach one image to your final entry post along with the words "Final Entry - (Forum name)" This will make sure you are not missed out of the results thread.
  • The challenge will run quarterly and will be
    • 1st February to 29th April, 
    • 1st May to 30st July, 
    • 1st August to 30st October, 
    • 1st November to 30st January.
  • The results thread will be posted on the last day of the ending month. It will be a collection of all the entries into one post for condensed viewing and some post challenge discussion.


The Rest

Remember you are entering for your own enjoyment and there could be a risk that your work develops into something new and exciting.

Be considerate of others and don't post opinions without good reasons to back them up. We are all here to improve and progress with our ceramics.

Some dates may vary slightly as this is a community run project and it will depend on members having access to the forum.


Have any ideas for a challenge? Post them in the ideas thread http://community.cer...hallenge-ideas/



(If there is anything you feel I have missed out, could be improved or doesn't make any sense please send me a personal message.)

Does storing oxides in direct sunlight affect them in any way?

What do people think about a monthly/two month challenge?


I have seen it done on other art forums and want to bring it here. The general idea is you have a subject matter or influence and we all go off and make a piece using the topic set out. After a month or two the entries would be voted on and a winners decided. Not sure if the forum allows for votes but I seem to remember voting on something.


Much more information would be decided for the actual thing but would you think about entering? If nobody joins in there is not much point.

Does anybody have information on how this stuff works? How does it self glaze?


Somebody in my studio wants to make some sculptures from it and rent my kiln so I am looking for a bit of education in this area.
