Stamping Yunomi

Below is a recent session from my Periscope Channel where I stamp some yunomi for the upcoming Annual Yunomi Invitational at Akar Design in Iowa City. There was a little break due to an interruption in my wifi signal, so you might want to watch both segments. I talk a little about my stamps in the first segment.

You can see some of my other Periscope sessions, here. But it's way more fun if you tune in live and join the chat with other like minded folks.

To do that,

Thanks and enjoy!

Periscope Class

I did a Basics of Periscope broadcast last week. Although it abruptly ended when we had a brief power outage, there may be some encouraging words and helpful hints for those of you who might be curious about the #pottersofperiscope

A Periscope Chat

In case you haven't heard about my obsession with the live streaming app, Periscope, I thought I would share a recent 'scope session here on the blog because I know not everyone has access to the app or Facebook (where I have been plugging my broadcasts)

I'm not sure if it will make any sense here or whether the experience will translate, but here goes. Please leave a comment here if you have any trouble or have any suggestions, etc.

THINK BIG 2: Mastering the Marketplace 

A six-week interview series designed to get you and your ceramic career launched!

Co-hosted by Ben Carter, artist and host of the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler podcast and artist-designer Molly Hatch. This six-week series covers a wide range of topics from wholesale vs. retail sales, gallery do's and don'ts, publishing articles to increase your audience, and generating sales from social media!

Ben and Molly on this session of Think Big:
"In today's art market, artists have to be more than just makers. We are marketers, sales people, web designers, and so much more. Think Big is a six week series of interviews with successful ceramic artists, art agents, dream clients and book editors. This series of interviews are designed to help you build the skills you need to expand your creative business, learn some tricks of the trade and think beyond the traditional methods of reaching your market."
Featured during this session
Justin Rothshank : on generating sales on social media
Naomi Cleary of The Clay Studio : on gallery do's & dont's
Jessica Knapp of Ceramics Monthly: on working with the press
Keith Kreeger : on working with restaurants as clients
Nicole Acquillano: on selling retail vs wholesale
Lindsay Oesteritter of Objective Clay: the online cooperative gallery

How It Works
Each week TB2 will send you a link to a video interview with a new guest around a themed topic. Think Big encourages participants to discuss the videos each week with a prompted discussion group online, where you can connect with other members of the series and have a community discussion about the topics that come up for you each week. Ben and Molly will be watching the group discussions as well as joining in.
In addition to the video interviews and discussions each week, TB2 will include downloadable bonus material in the form of a series of worksheets. The worksheets are for you to keep and work through at your own pace. By the end of the six weeks, you will have new inspiration for expanding your creative business and a clear direction for moving forward--on to BIG THINGS!

A note about tuition: Prior to February 4th the course costs $99, after February 4th the course costs $149 so...;-)

More Hyper-lapse Than You Can (quickly) Shake A Stick At

Sometimes I lapse. Do you? Do lapse? Laps? Lately I've really been loving the time-lapse feature of ye olde iPhone.
