Friday the 13th


We are finally back online. The problem with posting has been resolved by our webmaster and I can now continue with the blog and update the catalog. Several changes need to be made to the catalog including new photos, changes in some of the prices, and adding new pages that were never actually written. I will keep you apprised here in the blog whenever changes are made to the catalog.

Ohio Ceramic Supply Open House

The Third Annual Open House since OCS went under new management was held September 22 & 23.  Jim and Carol both attended workshops / classes on both days.

  • mold-making (Jim)
  • creating pieces with fabric (Carol)
  • bottle cap leather-look pumpkin painting (Carol)
  • clay puzzling giraffe (Jim)
  • glaze raking (Jim & Carol)

We will be offering classes on some of these techniques so watch for announcements.

Cyberflyers I.A.D.C.C.T.

The September meeting was a Retreat via Skype. Members shared projects, techniques, and tips. We will be trying out the Cranberry Bubbles project, and then sharing with our students.

North Coast Clay Pots I.A.D.C.C.T.

Jim and Carol both attended the September meeting of this chapter in Tiffin Ohio. We actually did two projects — one with Raku and another with horsehair. Jim will be teaching these techniques at some time in the future. Watch for an announcement.

The October meeting is this Sunday, October 15th in Risingsun Ohio. It is a Pumpkin Seminar and we were told to bring greenware already painted in orange cover coats.  Will post pictures when finished.
