Ceramic Resources

CHAT Connection
IRC - #Potters
Many potters from the US, Canada and other parts of the world visit regularly and
talk clay. They have potter friends come in from Singapore, Santo Domingo, Australia (and more). You can all gather to compare notes on glazes, let off steam about problems and ask advice about technical or aesthetic concerns with immediate response. For an isolated artist/craftsman this can be an invaluable source of support and recharging.
