Qotw: What Can We Find Under Your Table?

26 April 2016 - 09:57 AM

Hello friends, I am back from Korea. Many thanks to Pres for the 2-weeks stand-in. He did it so well, I think I am going to Korea again (or elswhere)....


When I asked after NCECA Kansas City what you would like to discuss in the QOTW of the coming year, Joel wrote: " I like questions that get into other peoples studios".


Ok, here's a challenge: show us what's under your table in your studio (no, no, don't go and tidy up before taking the pic!)..


I will post my pic tomorrow....


Have a happy week!



Qotw: Do You Sneak A Peek?

05 April 2016 - 10:55 AM

Hi my friends


Finally I have finished the many preparations for my coming Korean adventure (exhibition and lecture). One of the open issues was to fire the chawans (John, is there a plural word like chawans?) I did last year, before my surgeries. Most of the time I am an impatient human being, but when it comes to opening the kiln, I sit on my hands and wait until the kiln is at least down to 65°C (that would be approx. 150 F).


How about you? Are you sneak peeking at a high temp out of impatience?


Have a good week everybody.



Qotw: Seconds Getting Firsts Anybody?

29 March 2016 - 06:30 AM

Did you ever, out of an emergency (pottery market date is just round the corner) or of other reasons, declare a second for a first? Have you been in situations where you knew that the object you were holding after opening the kiln was really not good enough to sell, but you decided to sell it anyway and declare the flaw it has as a special feature?


I confess: I did!


What about you?



Qotw: Will You Be My Guest?

16 March 2016 - 02:54 PM

My dear forum friends


I thank you from all my heart for your messages and emails and answers in the last QOTW. It makes me happy that you like this topic so much and that you asked me to continue.


This morning we had our Potters Council Advisory Board Meeting at NCECA and I volunteered for another year to do the QOTW. But (big but!) I need your help. I would appreciate you giving me ideas for the weekly questions or tell me your wishes. I want to invite guests to help me with the topic. So please, don't be shy. Write to me what you want us to discuss in this wonderful possibility to communicate among friends and potters.


Thank you. Here's to another year of interesting questions and answers.


Greetings from Kansas City.
