yey for demos...
And thanks to ron for his demo on lidded forms, I though I'd give those a try this afternoon and being a similar thrown form to my bottles they weren't too hard to get the hang of...after checking the second video on rons you tube page I dashed back up to the studio to place a lil hole in each lid to stop them raising up off the bats...ta mucho mr P..
Along with some trimming from yesterday I'm trying an oval shape lid to fit a barrel that i fired without it's lid last year that warped and a three pointed bowl just for fun..
I also tested some software this week recording a segment of the Pre Conference with Christy Assaud, Andy Brayman, Ron Meyers, and Ellen Shankin as they demo at the NCECA Making Through Living—Living Through Making: Studio Pottery in 2010 at the Montgomery County Community College.
The pre conference ran overnight here. The software is called Snapz Pro X and has a demo version for 15 days. It basically records what you can see and hear on your computer screen. The result is really good not cinema quality but great for this type of online event. So a big thankyou to all who promo-ed this event and yey for demo software that I got to see some of it..
