Topics I've Started
Posted 13 May 2013can't believe how many used kilns are available today on craigslist, washington dc. you have to enter kiln
in the category for sale then when the next screen comes up with thousands of listings for kiln dried lumber you choose title has image and select. it will show some from as far as annapolis and part of WV.
there are lots of them of all sizes and include even a brand new test kiln. if i can be of help as your "eyes" i will do so.
Posted 11 May 2013so much out there is beautiful, whose work would you like to claim as your own? not their lifestyle just the pot or pots. anything goes.
mine would, hands down, be tom coleman.
Posted 7 Mar 2013anyone got a recipe for a fake ash glaze? i gave away the last of the bucket of glaze that had been given to me without a recipe ( so i used it only on exteriors). it was green. i would like a basic recipe so i can change colors. anybody???
Posted 23 Nov 2012i am toying with the idea of offering a private "workshop" on weekends next summer. since i live on the potomac river and am not too far from DC or Baltimore i thought i might mix lessons with something fun for people considering getting into pottery. showing how a working studio might look, visiting some of the many potters in the area to see how differing techniques dictate different studios. using a wheel or slab roller and trying new techniques the "student" may not know combined with free time to use the canoe, etc. i am thinking friday evening through sunday evening so they can get home in time to rest up for work on monday. i have two extra bedrooms and thought maybe offering a parent and child experience could work.
i can't think of how to plan a weekend of this type and wonder if any of you have had any experience with something like this. i am certainly not Penland or Brasstown or Archie Bray and i would never attempt to try to approach seasoned potters. i believe there is a market for what i am thinking if i can just crystallize it. where would i advertise something like this other than ceramics monthly's april edition. i tried that a couple of years ago and the phone number was printed incorrectly so i got nothing from that source and was discouraged enough not to try again.
any suggestions? i've considered posting notes at the supply centers and wherever there is a bulletin board potential clients might see. what else can i do?
Posted 17 Nov 2012a neighbor took a picture of some pots she saw recently in williamsburg, va. i love the stuff and want to find out who made it. do you recognize this work?
