Topics I've Started
Posted 11 Sep 2012What do you do with pots that (accidentally) have heavy bottoms?
Do you have any tricks to fix them? I teach my students a few fixes
and I notice that the fix actually allows them an opportunity to be creative.
Posted 4 Sep 2012I have talked to many potters (and student potters) and there seems to be a divide between those
who like to trim and those who don't. (By "trimming" I mean the usual thing that potters do to a thrown piece--
turn the work upside down on the wheel, center it, and carve the underside with a specialized tool,
to enhance the basic form, and add a foot.
Personally I love to trim. It is a nice break from throwing and it really improves the forms--especially bowls.
I love the way trimming puts air and light under a piece. And you???
Posted 27 Aug 2012I was wondering if you have some favorite items in your repertoire.
I know i do, and I make them more often than other things.
There are some items that I don't like to make and thus, make them rarely.
My favorites are mugs, bowls, and spoon jars, although for show work
I make larger pieces, especially covered jars. How about you?
Posted 20 Aug 2012Do you make small pieces on certain days, or certain weeks, then switch
to medium or large? For example, If you are going to make larger pieces,
it requires having a lot more clay on hand, so it must take some planning, right?
How do you decide every day what to make??
How much studio time can you fit into your life and still take care of household chores, gardens, etc.
Posted 13 Aug 2012How much studio time can you fit into your life and still take care of household chores, gardens, family, etc.
I have to PLAN to reserve a block of studio time, because I am still teaching, while also caring for a house (solo),
tending a few tomato plants, cooking for friends occasionally, visiting grandchildren, etc. I was wondering how much
time you manage to get into your studio to work--daily? weekly? monthly?
