  2. It's a bit chilly here this week and my wheel is in a shed that is outdoors with a gas heater. -27C so maybe I should think of something else to do.

      Yeah, we were being all smug about being warmer than the Midwest, and now we just spent 2 days trying to get a friend's truck started. (No block heater.)

      They were finding ticks in Calgary last week, and then this hit.

      Sounds like a good day to mix glaze tests inside.

      But then we couldn't get all ragey about the guilt tactics that diet manufacturers and health clubs use this time of year!

  11. 1000 Miles Apart Ceramics Conference in Calgary this weekend. I haven't spent this much time watching demos in a looong time!

    1. Callie Beller Diesel

      Callie Beller Diesel

      Oldlady, I'll try! Roberta, we had demos from Carole Epp from the Musing About Mud Blog, Jeni Hansen-Gard talked about her socially engaged clay practice, and Peter Barbour demoed his fibre clay sculpting process. Ciro DiRucoco came to town and stayed with me, and he's the guy who's been curating the Plainsman Clay Instagram feed for the last while. We had a cup auction for a fellowship fund they're starting for ACAD students to attend the Medalta residency program and clay olympics on the last day. And I can finally say this somewhere: Ciro and I put the finishing touches on our picks for a show that we have helped curate that will be part of the official NCECA events in Minneapolis next March! I'm going to my first NCECA!!!

  12. How is everyone? It has been a while. Just wanted to check in and say I love and miss you all! Fired my kiln today. First time in 8 months I have even touched a pot. Made me realize how much I miss this community. Hope everyone's pots are great and their glazes are perfection!

  13. heading to Medalta again for a week!

  15. I swear, I have a half track mind. Saw an ad for a local poetry slam, and read pottery slam. My first thought was "that could be an entertaining fundraiser."

      Can we write caffeine off as a necessary business expense?

  17. Today is my anniversary of pottery three years now. I posted an image on the gallery with more thoughts for anyone who wants to read it. Thanks to everyone here for all your wonderful help, thoughts, and support. Without you all I wouldn't be a potter.

  20. Experimenting with underglazes today, firing tonight. Kinda excited to get the burst of color I want on my pots.

  21. I am reading a book on clay body formulation from 1959: and the information is relatively the same as in 2017. Why does this bother me?

    1. Callie Beller Diesel

      Callie Beller Diesel

      It sounds like you're more irritated by the fact that someone has probably looked into this in depth before, but they've yet to be bothered to write it down, and now the job's been left to you.

  22. Think I finally convinced myself to write a book on clay formulation and remedies for common clay issues. Should not take me more than five years.

  23. There's a job at Denby for a trainee lab tech developing glazes. Gimme please :D Also one as a craft potter but not sure I am good enough for that. Might send in a cv anyway.

  24. The last 2 weeks I've clocked 100+ hours/week in the studio in preparation for a craft show. My body absolutely hates me and my brain is fried. But I went through many audible books and finished Neil Tyson's Cosmo series. It better rain money soon.

      And good luck! Here's hoping you come home much lighter!
