  1. John,


    I responded to you privately because it revolves around multiple email addresses.


    In general if others have this same issue:


    Your Potters Council email address on file needs to be the same as your Ceramic Arts Daily email. If they are different you will not be granted access to Potters Council Members Only pages.


    If this does occur, please contact Carolyn Dorr at cdorr@ceramics.org to fix this issue. You will need to provide me with both emails.

    Like many of you, I have become a fan of the cooking channels on television. It could be that I just love to watch other people work, or perhaps I’m just a “Foodie†at heart.


    One of my favorite shows is ‘Molto Mario’ with Mario Batali. Not only does he cook up some great tasting Italian food, he also serves it on beautiful pottery. His various platters, bowls and dishes are uniquely shaped and decorated. His preparation does not stop at the stove, but carries through to the table. Often his choice is unexpected but wonderful. This potter waits with anticipation to see what kind of serving dish the meal will be presented in.


    I know most of you use pottery mugs and dinnerware, but how many of you use your beautiful large platters and bowls at parties and mealtimes? Do they sit on display or are you enjoying their essential function?


    What better way to spread the word about the joys of owning real pottery than to load them with food to share with friends and family? If you do this often enough with a variety of people, eventually they will see that having a selection of well executed, human made pots could be a good thing.


    Potters Council is considering a conference crafted around food and pottery. We might need a larger venue however since this could be quite a popular event. It seems like such a natural combination … why didn’t we think of this sooner?


    What a great idea for another calendar … Food on Pottery!


    The next time you serve up something wonderful on pottery, take a photo and post it on the Potters Council Forum. We’d all love to see what you’ve created and get a variety of ideas on how to use our own pottery more often.<br style=""> <br style="">

  3. Eric, welcome back to Potters Council... The forum here has a great gallery. I would for sure post your pictures. Also, now that you're a member again. You should post pictures in the Potters Council Artist Portfolio. I have attached a link to the portfolios and how you send in the information.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

  4. You've come to the right spot if you're looking for an international organization that connects potters from around the world. Potters Council may be the organization that you're looking for...


    A nurturing, creative community

    The Potters Council was formed to create a community of potters and ceramic artists from around the world. This is a community of potters dedicated to supporting each other by sharing ideas, insights, and advice. Community is important. We can all share techniques and tips and add new dimensions to each other’s works–and our own. You never know what will inspire your work or influence your next project. But that’s part of the joy of pottery! And when you become a member of the Potters Council, you’re part of a creative, compassionate community of people who understand you.


    Connected to the clay

    Potters Council is a nonprofit subsidiary of The American Ceramic Society (ACerS). It was formed to serve you: potters, ceramic artists, lovers of clay. Our mission is to meet the needs of studio potters and ceramic artists by providing a place for knowledge exchange and professional enhancement.

  5. I am temporarily in Doha Qatar. I am searching for a possible studio here where I might continue my ceramic learning while living here. So far have only learned about one that has closed. If any one has any contacts here, I would greatly appreciate them! Thanks!





    I have checked the membership to see if I could find someone close to you, but I was not successful. I do hope that someone on the forum will be able to help you locate a studio near you...

  6. While attending NCECA I was able to talk to many artists, and one of the major concerns continues to be health insurance.


    Here at Potters Council, we are concerned that many artists are not covered. We've been able to help many members obtain insurance in the US (some states are not eligible). It is worth it to give them call or request a quote online. Check out the information below.

  7. Potters Council Student Membership

    Working in clay can sometimes be a solitary pursuit. But there are times that we need to share ideas, ask questions, search for solutions. Especially students need to have the opportunity to reach out to others who have more experience in clay. Potters Council would like to be one of the resources you have to get the necessary help you need to transition from a student.

    There are times when we need a community of people who think like us, who feel like us, who love clay like us.


    To JOIN call 800-424-8695 or 818-487-2054 or to learn more about Student membership click to this link: http://ceramicartsda...rships-only-25/


    During NCECA we signed up many new student members. I look forward to them particpating in all of the great benefits.
