In Topic: Qotw: Are You Showing Us The Best Piece You Made When Starting With Pottery?

22 August 2016 - 11:28 AM

Just back from 4 days in Croatia (Ceramica Multiplex opening and lectures). Very interesting pieces in the exhibitions (including mine ;) ). Will post my pictures for the QOTW tomorrow. Stay tuned!


John, thank you! I left you all alone....



In Topic: Barcelona Symposium 2016

17 August 2016 - 02:25 AM

Awww Marcia, thank you. And I am so honored that everybody I asked to participate in the symposium immediately said yes. We are a great group and I know that we will have lots of fun. I am especially happy to work again with you! HUGS


Shall we write an article for Potters Pages? 5 international PC members in Barcelona, having fun? ;) :lol:

In Topic: Qotw: Are There More Male Or Female "well Known" Potters?

17 August 2016 - 02:09 AM

My answer has nothing to do with famous potters, but with the balance of male and female... Just a few observations over the past say 4 years:


  • workshop at La Meridiana = 9 women, no men
  • 2 On Centre courses, also La Meridiana = majority women, only 1-2 men
  • presentation of the Rancho School at NCECA = all girls, no boys
  • workshop with Antoinette Badenhorst in Switzerland = 8 women, 1 man
  • dito around Europe = majority women, only 1-2, or no men
  • applications for a swissceramics contest (exhibition in Paris!) = 16 women, 1 man



How, if only women better themselves and take classes, workshops etc. can it be, that more men win contests and are in general more famous as ceramists? Does that mean workshops, classes etc are for socializing, but not exactly for learning? Hmmmm... (Teachers on the forum: it's just a question! Don't hit the messenger....)

In Topic: Qotw: Clay Poem Anybody?

09 August 2016 - 12:50 PM

No QOTW is ever winding down Nerd! Look at all the answers I get month after I posted a question. It's an ongoing QOT-X (insert week/month/year/ etc.). Sooooo you have to wait a while longer for my poem. BUT, stay tuned or you'll miss it.... :P :D


Pres: I am impressed! Really great poem.


And to everybody who contributed: thank you so much for all the poetry. This was a break QOTW from all the potters problems we (sometimes) have. I enjoyed your jumping into cold water and write poetry.


A bouquet of roses to all our poetry writers on this forum!! :wub:


(pssst, Nerd, there is no new QOTW from you in my inbox. How shall we have fun without your great ideas! Come on, don't let me down....).
