Midwest Ceramic Show Spring 2022

MVCT (Mahoning Valley Ceramic Teachers) had nine members attend the show this weekend, taking classes, demonstrating rubber stamps, and buying lots of bisque and supplies.

To see what we did go to Jim Warneke’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003334540599) to see his walk through on Friday. He videotaped the various booths and interviewed most of the vendors. It runs a little over and hour.

Saturday Jim videotaped our Live at the MVCT table. It is on Carol’s Carousel Classes Facebook group page (https://www.facebook.com/100003334540599/videos/3595413800582857). I showed painting the stamped designs, how to apply the stamps, and talked through the variety of stamps and samples on the display table. This video was also about an hour.

Throughout the show, there was someone at the table most all of the time. People were encouraged to purchase a piece of bisque with a large area for stamping from one of the many bisque vendors. Then bring it to our table and stamp whatever they wanted onto their piece. Some just stamped on a piece of paper, some stamped their design on bisque to take home and paint, and some sat and painted their design after stamping. After the paint dries for 24 hours so it doesn’t smear (we used Duncan Concepts), the ware can be clear glazed and fired. The gnome stamps were especially popular, and many people wanted to buy some from me.

The video Jim did of the demonstration is our Thursday Night Live for this week.
