  3. Please consider helping us with the Potters Council Mentoring Program... We have a handful of Mentees requesting help with business questions and set-up, marketing plans, and general business advice. It will not take much of your time. Do you mind sharing a few tips, answering a few of their questions, helping a new potter/ceramic artist know the next steps to be an artist full-time and make a living in the art world? It is not an easy endeavor. Your advice will carry art forward and help an artist make it in a world that is not as art-friendly at times. You can set the terms of your contact - if you prefer emails, if you like to talk by phone every other Saturday before noon, etc. You can say how long you can help - a month, three months, six months, etc. We just need a moment of your time to help our fellow artists. Please take a look at the program. Please volunteer to help a Mentee. We will proudly recognize you as a Potters Council Mentor and you will be eligible for our awards and more. Info on Potters Council Mentoring Program Thank you for your consideration!
  4. Glad you mentioned film. It reviews this debate and guilt. As artist and parent... I work every available moment - but prioritize children first - and understand that my plan can change at any given moment. I schedule studio time next to basketball games and parent conferences. I require my annual art sabbaticals of intense arts immersions at workshops. I find that these getaways help me define my work and really focus on year ahead of me, review my themes, and work out forms and ideas. The children are precious, but I don't give everything away. I hold onto the art side of me and honor the training and pensive work time it requires. Daily battle of balancing. Daily compromises. ...but also daily happiness and daily fulfillment. Latest compromise...creating art on a theme revolving around being a parent. HA!
  5. To all~~~ It does not take too much time to Mentor. We need people from all backgrounds and with many different specialties. Most relationships are completed through emails. The Mentoring Partnerships are a gift as these relationships provide a one-on-one contact point for a fellow artist. Please consider helping....even if just for a month or 3 months. Your business skills, photographing techniques, portfolio critiques, firing questions, and technique reviews are worth sharing...and we have Mentees asking. Here is a link for more details.... http://ceramicartsdaily.org/potters-council-members/potters-council-mentoring-program/ Thank you again!
  6. John Glick---to ask him a million questions. I am completely okay if he talks with his mouth full! http://www.plumtreepottery.com/ Aggie Zed - her intricate figure sculptures captivate me and I want to chat with her creative mind: http://www.aggiezed.com/Main/sculpture.htm Linda Arbuckle - after watching her NCECA video and since I am completely in awe with her work, I would be honored to spend time with her~~ http://lindaarbuckle.com/ Cynthia Bringle - always one of my favorite people and potters. I think her quick wit and funny comments would make for a great conversation! Plus, I want to see Edwina, too! I will forever be in Cynthia's fan club! http://www.cynthiabringlepottery.com/ Herman Muys - just want to peek inside of his mind and ask him if I can watch him work sometime http://www.artworks.be/gallery.php?language=EN&artist_id=1 Hope everyone is good with a tofu turkey and a special Native American prayer~~ Happy Gathering Day to all! I am thankful for clay and the many gifts of people (famous and not-so-famous) and visual ecstasy it brings into my life.
  7. If you have both marketing and business skills and know how to photograph your artwork...welcome welcome welcome! This Mentee could use your knowledge and expertise. Please let us know that you can help here: PCMP Info and Application Thank you for your consideration!
  8. Do you have skills? Do you know a few pottery techniques? Do you know the Retail Business, the Wholesale Business? Can you help define a business plan? And are you good at sharing form and aesthetics feedback? Please consider helping this NC potter. She is a thrower, enjoys working with Image Transfers and Decals, Alternative Firings and Salt/soda Firings and open to other methods. If you answered yes to any or most of these questions, you can help Mentee #814. Here is the application for more details: Info and application Thank you for your consideration! We hope you can offer a "yes" answer and that you have a little free time to help her.
  9. Please consider helping a fellow potter in AK. She is a thrower, hand builder, into sculpture, tile making, architectural ceramics and more. Her idea is to transition from functional to art pieces. Also interested in mold making, tiles, and learning to throw. If you can guide her, provide feedback on business, forms and aesthetics, undergrad and graduate submissions, please consider joining an altruistic crew of Mentors. She hopes for a 3-6 month Mentoring Relationship, but is open to smaller time frames, if necessary. And if you have a great sense of humor, extra plus, plus, plus! Details on the PC Mentoring Program PC Mentor Application Thank you for your consideration!
  10. I agree with Brenda. The local potters are so gracious and truly enjoy company. If someone is crazy busy, you will be able to judge in the moment. I know you will find open doors and welcoming artists. It is a wonderful experience....share photos or your adventures (and possibly purchases).
  11. "I would be a tiled architectural wonder, like Gaudi's Guell Parque in Barcelona..." Marcia: amazing....fits you perfectly~~
  12. Sculptural, Functional....we choose these lines deliberately as artists. As personified art, I would be functional...touched daily (ha!), "good for something," part of life's pulse and collecting energy with good use and experience. {btw, Enjoying the questions and most answers~~~}
  13. I would bring my very favorite coffee mug by Jeff Brown. It would remind me that artists can find beautiful optimism in any situation by creating. The sgraffito also gives great hand massages after trying to open stubborn coconuts and after ripping off stalks for a hut. Jeff Brown's Website - Pottery for all of your trips to sea
  14. Yippeee! We have good news. A General and Master Mentor reported for duty to help the Mentee! Thank you for your replies and for your interest~~~We appreciate your help and your altruism. Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities or take a look at any open ads to help another clay artist. Thank you again ~~
