Pottery making - the beginning

in ceramics •  2 years ago

I started to throw pots some 15 years ago. Before that I did courses in slab building and raku firing.
These are some pots I made in the early years. Copy of DSC_0077.JPG
And this one is more recent.

I am very interested in developing glazes and trying new things. I like to experiment with firing techniques. In my next posts I hope to write about those ventures.IMG_1190.JPG

Thanks. I hope to post more soon.

Well done and welcome to steemit ! ..I saw your post on my Fb page !
Keep posting, commenting, upvoting ...its slow going ( but will get better if we don't give up) but it is promoting good content which is important.

Thanks Simon, I am eager to find out more about steemit. It would be nice to have a new potters community. I watched many of your tutorials on youtube. It is always interesting to see a professional ceramist at work. And yes I keep practicing :)

Well I am learning and have only been here for one week , seems like it could be a good platform for interaction with a little earning as well, which is always nice !

I am still trying to figure out how things can be found here. The system of tags is a bit rough. Search for potter and I find Harry. I guess I should register on the chat. I have not seen any interest groups here yet.

It is odd, but you need to register again for the chat, the login for steemit does not work. I registered as clayterreklei . However, I did not find a lot of help yet. It is not your usual forum with topics and sub-topics apparently.

Plaĉas al mi vidi vin labori kaj la rezultoj de via arto. Ŝajnas, ke vi uzas Elektra forno. Bonŝance vi povas labori en bela naturo. Kie vi loĝas?
Bonan tagon.

Danke kaj bonan matenon @johano. Jes, mi kutime uzas elektra forno. Mi loĝas en Francio, en la Tarn.

Ho interese. Ĉu vi ankaŭ parolas la okzitanan ?
En mia familio kaj amikaro troviĝas kelkajn potistojn. Nun mi vivas en Britio, kaj ĵus ni havas "Art Week". Mi skribos artikolon pri keramika evento baldaŭ. Ĉu vi preferas babili en la angla aŭ la germana?

No I don't speak occitan, some of the people here still do. English is easier for me than German or French. I worked for a company for 25 years that has English as its language and I lived in Texas. I look forward to your article on ceramics in your area.

Thank you for sharing this great pottery art it’s beautiful
