New Glaze Recipe Database Makes it Easy to Organize Your Recipes!

Posted On October 1, 2014 0 Comments

I have to admit, I am somewhat organizationally challenged. It’s not that I don’t love being organized, it’s that sometimes I can’t keep up…yeah, that’s it. I’ll blame it on being busy!

 

This carries over into my studio way more than I would like. Again because of the limited time I get to spend there. I’d much rather make work than spend time organizing! So things aren’t set up in the most efficient way, glaze recipes and notes are scattered amongst various sketchbooks and scraps of paper. You get the picture.

 

So I am extremely excited by our latest development here at CAD – CeramicRecipes.org – not just because it is the beautiful result of lots of hard work by our team, but also because I am sincerely excited to use it! In addition to containing tons of glaze recipes that you can search in a number of intuitive ways, the site also has tools that will help you have organized access to your favorite glaze recipes wherever you are (it looks great on a phone!).

 

In today’s post, I thought I would share a couple of our video tours of CeramicRecipes.org to show how useful it really is. Plus I’m including a glaze recipe I found on the site that looks pretty cool! Enjoy, and I hope you find it helpful in your studio. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

Platters: Four Approaches to Making and Decorating Plates

NEW RELEASE
It is a misconception to think that plates are easy to make because the challenge of achieving height isn’t there. But plates can be tricky. Issues of warping and cracking can be common if you don’t know what you’re doing. So, we’ve gathered four talented artists to demonstrate how they approach making plates.
