2016-02-12 - Friday - Early Friday Morning Periscope

Thanks to Michael Kline (the king of all pottery social media) I have started using Periscope. There are a LOT of potters using Periscope now. I've watched Michael Kline paint pots, Will Baker throw ramen bowls, and Adam Field glaze Onggi jars, among others. They're all streaming live video from wherever they are and we viewers can comment, ask questions, and "applaud" by tapping the screen.

Michael Kline has taken us on a tour of STARworks clay facility. Adam Field has given us a tour of the Archie Bray gallery,and the Turman Larison Contemporary Gallery in Helena while they were having an opening.

It's exciting. There's almost always a potter online doing something and we can peer in on them. It's like a very laid back, ongoing mini workshop. If nobody is currently online you can watch the recordings for twenty four hours before they disappear.

Thanks to all the presenters who are letting us into their worlds.

I wanted to include this screenshot of Adam Field (the churro king) because it has the word albatross in the comments which makes me giggle every time I see it.
