About Ceramics Today

From your CT Editor, Steven Goldate

Ceramics Today is a comprehensive, independent not-for-profit ceramics site run by long-time ceramics webmaster Steven Goldate. Many of you may be familiar with its first incarnation as Claynet, which was set up in mid 1995 and was one of the first ceramics sites on the WWW (predating even the SDSU web site).

Towards the end of 1996, Claynet evolved into ceramics.about.com. While Claynet files were still available, the site was no longer being updated and all effort went into the About.com site (formerly also known as The Mining Company). At ceramics.about.com, your Ceramics Today Editor Steven Goldate acted as the 'Ceramics Guide', sifting through the maze of ceramics sites on the Net, selecting those worthy of a link, writing articles and answering thousands of reader's questions. Over the years hundreds of articles were written while the links database grew to be the most comprehensive on the Net.

It is this legacy on which Ceramics Today has built an expanded upon.

Many features of Ceramics Today will be familiar to you - the links, the gallery, the newsletter, the forum. There are also many new features - the daily ceramics tip, the Pot of the Week and the Odd Spot. You can register to receive notification of weekly updates to Ceramics Today via a brief email. Believe it or not, this time there are no ads and annoying pop-ups.

Currently Ceramics Today is free of ads. I would like to keep it that way, but to do so I need your support. You can do this by making a donation however large or small via PayPal's secure server. Donations are voluntary and will help me to pay for expenses such as domain name registration, web hosting and my efforts of hundreds of hours of work maintaining the site and sourcing and writing interesting articles. It's up to you, so please seriously consider making a donation.
