I have been neglectful of this blog and that is in part because I have been so distracted by the huge world of the Internet, I have been exploring Tumbler, Pinterest, Stumble upon, blogs and facebook groups. Are you aware of the wealth of information on Facebook pages such as Glaze and Recipe Sharing? Anyone with a facebook account can join and read the endless conversation threads, find answers to all sorts of glazing questions and share their own knowledge. Recently this group ran an online glaze course. It was quite fascinating.
This is an enjoyable blog to wander through, the blogger is Canadian ceramicist Carole Epp.
And here are a couple of other good blogs to send you on your way:
For those wondering what Tumbler is, here is one with a cute name:
Don't forget to check in on Auckland Studio Potters facebook page as well.

The opening event is from 5-7pm and the show runs daily from around 9.30 until 5pm. The exhibition will be staffed by volunteers from the ASP.
Julie Collis is allocating the awards for the work.
Update: the number of entries has far exceeded expectations and due to space constraints we are trialing having work in Reserve. As some work will be taken by people on a Cash and Carry basis (unusual for an exhibition but needs must and all that) we will be able to replace some pieces as space becomes available. We will see how this works. Hopefully the award winning pieces will be able to remain on display for the duration of the show.
