The Peep Show
Gamble, David L.
Arts & Activities, v147 n1 p22-23 Feb 2010
Three years ago, the author and Linda Arbuckle (University of Florida ceramic professor and internationally known majolica clay artist) were on the phone discussing how electric kilns just don't have any artistic design flair to them. The round kiln has basic properties that allow it to function properly, but its looks are far from exciting. They wondered what they could do to add some spark and artistic interest to the design. When Linda suggested that the clay peephole plugs could be designed by clay artists, the author conceived the idea of a "Peep Show" for the ceramic community. The author describes how he developed the project for clay artists that provides a fun way to involve potters and K-12 students. He offers some construction tips for teachers who want to tailor it to their classroom situations.
