Perhaps a little more than usual, this week has been a bit of a balancing act between working in my studio and working on this blog. I’ve been on a roll getting the new site for my blog up to where I want it to be (obsessed, some might say). But I’ve also been building … Continue reading Blog odds and ends
This post is a version of my new blogroll which can be found on one of the top tabs on the new site. It was way too big to list in the side bar of the site so I gave it it’s own page. After a lot of work (and a little lot of help), I … Continue reading A semi-complete tour of pottery blogs, part 6

I had attended a number of panel discussions and lectures given by writers, editors and publishers of both books … Continue reading Four Years of Pottery Blog!
I have once again updated my blogroll of clay focused blogs. It’s getting loooong. But I seriously do read all of these blogs. As I have mentioned before, I use a blog reader, Google Reader, to keep track of my subscriptions. I could never actually keep track of all of these without it. I also … Continue reading Tour of Clay Focused Blogs (semi-complete), part 5
This is another big one, but if you (or someone you know) has a blog or website, or you are planning to one day, I think this information will be pretty valuable. ————————— When you write a clay focused blog, your intention is that someone out there will read what you’re writing. In the beginning … Continue reading Search Engine Optimization for Clay Bloggers
I thought that it would be fun to try to round up as many online resources for folks who are interested in soda firing and put it together into one handy post. Since there isn’t that much publish (relatively speaking), I think it has the possibility of being relatively comprehensive. I hope you enjoy reading … Continue reading Resources for Soda Firing
I had a bunch of things piling up that I have been wanting to share with you, so I decided to compile everything into one big shout-out blog post. Enjoy! Some (blog) updates from me: I have been tweaking my blog template and have made some small but good changes. I updated my ceramic blog … Continue reading Updates and shout-outs!
When I started out on the venture of writing this blog almost 4 years ago, I could only really find a half dozen or fewer ceramic bloggers out there writing. Things have really exploded and there are new blogs popping up every week now (as well as some casualties). I thought I’d share with you … Continue reading A Semi-Complete Tour of Ceramics Blogs (part 4)
I have some issues with the standard cut off wire. They can break and it usually isn’t easy to replace the wire. Sometimes you need a longer wire to cut off a big platter. And sometimes you want something different from you wire – either a thinner wire or maybe something that will add texture. … Continue reading How to: make a cut off wire
