Moderator's Approval?

21 November 2013 - 05:49 AM

I just wantet to write something (positive) about one of our member's gallery fotos of really beautiful pots. When I hit the add comment button, I got the "Your comment requires moderator approval before it will be shown". I don't like that. I know we already had that problem discussed on and on in the near past. Please Admin, stopp the moderator approval thing. It is generating a great deal of bad blood. Thank you and kind regards.

Playful Search For Beauty

Maybe you already know this statement of Eva Zeisel, maybe not. I just discovered the video and I was blown away! So much to learn from a humble but Grand Lady of Ceramics.

 

The video is 18 minutes long but I recommend to take the time to listen to every minute she speaks. It's worth it! Imagine: she was 94 when she gave that statement on TED. She died at the age of 105, 2 years ago....

 

Although the translations and the title of the video are in German: don't leave the site. Eva speaks English throughout the talk. Enjoy.

Prayers for Tornado victims

21 May 2013 - 03:46 AM

I know this has nothing to do with pottery or pots, but I wanted to express my feelings for the Oklahoma Tornado victims. My heart goes out to the people who are suffering from this destructive winds. I hope, none of our potter friends are affected.
