CNC NEEDS YOUR IDEAS AND PREFERENCES IN MINI POTTERY! After many years of artistic play and a hiatus from much scale miniature pottery production, I have applied for the 2018 Guild show and also hope to get back to my old ETSY shop. The hair is white and the body not as limber, but I've been storing up lots of new ideas and techniques in the past years for just such a return to the mini world. Years ago my primary focus was in creating authentic replicas of traditional pottery of many eras - everything from Egyptian canopic jars, Proto-Geometric Greek amphoras and Egyptian paste bowls to 19th c. decorated stoneware coolers, redware turk's head molds, tiny inkwells and tea ceremony tea bowls. Right now my intention for the coming year is to make both historic minis as well as raku, pit and saggar fired vases and sculpture of my own design and to fire them in more authentic ways. I have a wealth of research material collected over almost 50 years of miniature making, but what do today's miniaturists really need or want for their current and future projects? I'd be grateful for your feedback, since I have been away from the mini community these past years. (I'm not soliciting orders, just ideas.) It will also be wonderful to re-establish contact with all my old pals from the miniatuiare world once again! My website (cncpottery.com) is a bit out of date right now, but it will tell you what this aging potter is up to.
