  1. Any tips applying for ceramic teaching jobs?

  2. I have a b23h J.J Cress electric kiln 240 volt 25 amp. It is a manual turn up. I noticed that inside the control box the porcelain connectors periodically make a popping sound and produce a blue spark. I am not knowledgeable about kilns. I am not quite sure what to do to remedy the problem, but I know I shouldn't use it till I repair it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I have a show coming up!

  3. Can't sleep. Titanium plate and screws in my collarbone ! Feeling positive tho' :-)

      Sleeping definitely the worst thing. Pile of pillows is helping. And busy during the day.

      Thanks Giselle, I like the cut it all, then remove it process. The clay has to be just the right hardness, Too soft and it doesn't cut, too hard and you end up scraping it out. Will try this technique on the next one tho'.

      Slip-cast, waited till leatherhard, then wrapped printed design and pencilled to mark desing. Used a sharp tool that is part of a "pottery tools" set, think it's a fettling tool. I did spend quite a while in CorelDraw making sure I had a good spiral. I originally wanted to do something like the spiral staircase in Venice, but decided to go more nature than architecture. I really enjoyed the process, going to do some more, and I've finally got someone else off "painting...

  7. Closing on my office/warehouse in a couple of more days. The question now becomes: what studio toy should I buy?

  8. Currently contemplating how many yarn jars I can throw to avoid writing an artist's statement.

      As many as you need to. Or did you expect a sensible answer from potters? :-)

  9. I thought Community Challenge #5 would be a cake walk because I am a tile guy. After seeing just a few posts, I am getting very very nervous. Forgot how talented the people are in here. Do judges take bribes?

  10. I'm determined to throw tomorrow no matter what! My son knows how to make peanut butter sandwiches, he can make lunch for both of us and feed me at the wheel! ;)

      First thing my mum taught me when I could walk, was how to find the bowl, cereals and milk, so she could have a lie in and I could get my own breakfast! Good for you.

  15. Red letter day yesterday. 25 days from having my knee replaced I was able to go into the studio and throw for a few hours. I'm becoming human again!

  16. Yay, I went to my first craft market today. My wife and I had a great time. There was only about 15 vendors, but I was the only potter. I sold almost everything and even got some commissions. I want to thank you all, for your kindness, acceptance and support. Along with all your great advice I was able to feel confident that I could do this. It wasn't about the money, but it was ok, but just knowing that I have friendships that care about me, makes me a millionair. I couldn't have don...

      Chilly
