Potters Benefit With CrackZapIt!

The Clay Gallery, page 4

Abram, Sarai, and God Having A Laugh 15" x 21" (ceramic part)

Potters, if you're childless, near 100, and someone tells you you'll have a son this time next year, YOU'D PROBABLY LAUGH, TOO!

But when they actually had one, they named him Isaac, which means, 'Laughter', or "she laughed"...

Abram, Sarai, and God: Hand Built Clay Plaque

...Then they laughed because they were over come with the blessing of God's promises!

Multiple colors of clay formed into a 3/4"-1/2" slab, pressed with the edges of sticks, self-portrait life-mask-mold used to pull 3 faces that were radically altered, sprinkled with frits and colorants, painted with slip, cone 10 reduction.

Tall Blue Coil Pot, Cone 5 Electric

This Coil Built Clay Wavy Pot, 24" purposely has a few spaces left in it to indicate that it's...

.. really a 'pot like form', purely for holding space, not beans or rice!

I made this as a 'demo' for student potters just learning the coil method.

I wanted them to see how many different kinds of coiled shapes could be used...

..how they could control the shape of the pot, and how high they could go.

I may decide to sand blast some of the glaze off sometime to better show the individual coils.

Cone 5 Electric

Pinch Pot 'Scooter' Cups, cone 5 Electric

These guys, Scooter Cups, each about 6" x 7", are for eating ice cream at celebrations!

(Hey, you can find something to celebrate every day, right?)

When kids, young or old, see that you can take a simple pinch pot and make just about 'anything' out of it, THE LIGHT TURNS ON!

I actually first used the idea when I was a young(ish) exhibitor starting out...looking for a way to set my thrown mugs apart from the rest of the competition. This was the first of many ideas that did just that...

...Of course, the real reason was that I was more interested in fighting boredom than making a buck off a 100 same or similar cups.

Cone 5 Electric

Well, I think that's enough, eh? I can always change 'em around when I get bored of looking at 'em.

At some point, I'd like to get some of YOUR pieces in a gallery on the site! I'll get around to that PDQ. {;>)

Folks  Who Love CrackZapIt! say, 

"Because it Works!"

"Thank you so much for this wonderful product. As an art teacher and child care giver I was washing my hands quite a bit. It wasn't long before I developed those painful cracks on my fingers. It got to the point where I couldn 't do the crafts I enjoy. I've tried everything but nothing worked until I used CrackZapit! Hooray! I will certainly be spreading the word about this miracle in a tube as I keep spreading it on my sore, cracked digits.Thanks again ! "

-Janet in Philadelphia, PA 

"We purchased CrackZapIt! On vacation this summer at Murdoch's in Craig, Colorado. My husband gets horrible cracks on his thumb and I noticed this at the checkout counter. I thought," Why not? "And purchased a tube. OMG! This was the best purchase ever !! His thumb cracks disappeared within a day. We both used it on our trip through Colorado to Yellowstone and Glacier. We now recommend it to everyone ... Thanks for a great product. "

-Nancy, Omaha, NE, 

"This is the only stuff that worked on my hand cracks .... and I've turned it on to my bartender friends in Mexico Beach, FL and they loved it !!!" (Ed.Note: Yes! It works in humid Florida where folks STILL get finger and thumb cracks!)


"I have eczema on my fingers and I tried CRACK ZAP IT and it was very soothing. It healed up so quickly like magic! It has helped tremendously and I decided to carry one tube in my purse all the time. My husband tried it on his cracked finger tips, it worked great and the result was amazing. We want to buy a few CRACK ZAP IT so we can give them as gifts to our friends and family .... "


" During the winter months, my fingers crack right at the tip on the edge of the nail. In addition to being painful it's hard to do small delicate tasks because of soreness and bandaids. I used CrackZapIt one time and over night my fingers were starting to heal and I could get rid of the bandaids. This is a "must carry in your pocket" for anyone who works outdoors. "


"I carry a tube with me all the time. It's always available to use at any time and really stops the pain of finger cracking. It helps heal the cracks in the creases of my fingers. In the winter time I'm never without it ! "


"Great for those cracks on your fingertips. I love it so much I'm getting some for my mom. Better than anything I've ever tried!"

-New Hampshire

"Heals dry cracked and bleeding fingers like magic. Nothing else even comes close. Its the only way we can get through the winter around here! Don't ever stop selling it please!"


I have found they work best together by applying the CRACKZAPIT first to any open areas, then apply the O'Keefe's. Then enjoy your painfree healing hands! "
