Ceramics gopher and mailing list

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Sunday, July 18, 1993
While wandering around the Net, I stumbled upon two resources that may
be of interest. The SDSU Ceramics Gopher is found at

    Name=The Ceramics Gopher
    Path=1/SDSU Campus Topics/Art/The Ceramics Gopher

    About the SDSU Ceramics Gopher:

    The SDSU Ceramics Gopher is an experimental database of glazes. The
    current database is a test for a larger database that is being
    compiled by the GlazeBase Working Group of the National Council for
    Education in the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) and which will be available in
    the near future. Plans also include the creation of a claybody
    database and a material analyses database. If you would like to
    contribute to this growing resource, we would welcome your
    contributions and your comments on the Ceramics Gopher.

    Ceramics Gopher comments & inquiries - please send e-mail to Richard
    Burkett at:
              rburkett [at] ucssun1__sdsu__edu
    GlazeBase comments & inquiries - please send regular mail to:
              Bob Feder, 5 Arvidale Rd. Warren, NJ 07059-7005

    We would like to thank Val Cushing of the New York State College of
    Ceramics at Alfred, NY for his generous donation of the initial
    group of carefully edited cone 6 and 10 glazes.

    PLEASE NOTE: If you choose to make use of any of these glaze
    recipes, please understand that you do so at your own risk. Ceramic
    materials carry unique hazards of which the ceramist should be
    aware. There are many very helpful books on the subject of arts
    hazards - please consult them if you have any questions about the
    safety of any materials mentioned herein. The GlazeBase group, all
    persons associated with the Ceramics Gopher, and SDSU can take no
    responsibility for the safety or success of any of these recipes.
    Permission is given only for non-commercial use of these recipes.

There is also a mailing list, ClayArt

    CLAYART is a forum for discussion of issues relating to clay.

    CLAYART is a computer conference that serves as a means of communication
    for those interested in the ceramic arts. CLAYART is open to anyone
    wishing to participate, but will be particularly useful for those in
    ceramic-related areas of academia, private studios, galleries, etc.

        * exhibition opportunities * workshops/seminars * conference
