After having been a piano teacher for a long time, I changed profession 13 years ago. I had my ceramics education mainly in the following ceramics schools: el torn, Barcelona (Spain), La Meridiana, Certaldo/Firenze (Italy) and Keramikakademie Freiburg (Germany). I feel especially drawn to alternative firing (pit fire, barrel fire, saggars fired in pits).
Hello there Clive, I will write a small article in the News of the New Ceramics magazine too. It will be published in the 6/15 issue (November/December). Just in time.
If you are a Potters Council member, you can put a free (!) ad for the film into the newsletter Potters Pages! Do that! https://www.pubservi...x?PC=PQ&PK=&FC=Or/and you can write an article about it yourself, also for the Potters Pages newsletter.
After seeing the film, I will write a longer article about it for the NC magazine.
Hi Linda, aka Shivers820, and a warm welcome to this forum. Like Pres said, we hope to hear/read more from you and are looking forward to your posts! Let us see what you are doing in clay and put a few pics in your gallery. See you soon...
You know what, Tom? I have to thank you again for this interesting topic. I must admit that only in reading the posts here did I get to reflect on whether my parents or siblings are/were creative too or not. I "snootily" thought until now that only we artists, ceramists, painters, wood turners, art producers etc. are the real creative people. But no! If you think it over, gardening is a very creative thing to do. And also my brother as a kindergarten teacher is creative when he carves faces or animals out of vegetable so that the kids eat them during break time. And why not my sister: she was a single parent of two girls and I am sure she was creative in organizing their life as well as tinkering with the girls. And that my mother was drawing in her youth, I already told you. So I would say I didn't exactly got the creativity in my blood stream congenitally, but the whole family was creative in one or the other way during life.
Btw: One of my sis daughters will get a Baby in January. That makes me a 4th time a great-aunty already
PS: I just read Tom's millionair story. Hey, better to have a green thumb! You can loose money, but, if you are careful, not your thumb....
