I just figured out that ama_crafts was old.

Okay, AMA artists... if you sell your work, how do you advertise it? Does it seem to work well? Is it free or inexpensive?

I kind of just asked the same question in AMA.

This is my work, by the way:


Stoneware Bowl


This bowl is made from:
Clay - dug from Valmasque (abandoned Vallauris/Biot clay-pits)
Grog - coarse Biot Eocence silica sand
Underglaze - 100% Cinerite (Vulcanic ash)
Overglaze - Standard (50%) Wood-ash glaze
Firing - 1300°C reduction gas firing
Dia - 14cm

Suppose I should post here for once...

Over the Christmas break, my girlfriend graciously posed in front of the camera for an idea I've wanted to try out for a while now. This was just experimenting.. I'm not all too pleased with the final product but this was more of a dry run to see how easy it would be to do.

Will you post an image/sound bite/whatever of one of your most recent pieces of art?

What is something that is currently bringing you inspiration? Why? Bonus points for Pictures/sounds/excerpts/whatever!

Bird Feeders


These are rough prototypes to see how the birds get on with them. Next time definitely no glaze except, perhaps, the tray for easier cleaning. With a few wires it should be simple to get it to hang. Next post with a bird in there (perhaps).



My first attempt at growing a bonsai, out in the rain this morning.

I went through and updated tags on entries to make things easier to find, and added some new tags to the list! I *think* that right now everyone can tag their own entries, so if there is something that you wanted added to the list, let me or one of the other mods know. :)

And just to include something, I wanted to share one of my favorite photos that I took last summer at my grandparent's lake house in Maine. The fact that the picture came out nicely is a total fluke because I just have a regular point-and-shoot camera, but it's one that I love to look at.

What to do on Thanksgiving when all your family is on the other side of the country?

Finish the biggest project of your knitting career, of course.
