Ceramics Solutions: the Automated Slip Stirrer
I don’t know why, but every time I make slip I get bubbles.  Crazy amount of bubbles.  At one stage, I’ll even get ceramic foam. (Yes, I’m firing it.)I keep my mixing tool going as slow as I can manage. I try sifting in my clay slowly.  I end up taking 3 hours to make slip that should only take 1 hour, and I still get Fracking Bubbles in the slip. 
And the only solution to getting them out is to stir it slowly.  For a long time.
I don’t have time for that!  Thus my improvised Automated Slip Stirrer (tm).  This ASS saves my ass. :pP.S.  For you potters and ceramics nuts out there, the gif has sped up the rotation considerably.  The stirring is going at half that speed, much more gentile.

Arne Svenson - Medical Museum

An ongoing relationship with the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia which houses an enormous collection of medical oddities has produced work that revels in the beauty of the grotesque.”

During a party, Luis Buñuel, seduced by Carrington’s beauty and emboldened by the notion that she had transcended all bourgeois morality, proposed (with his characteristic bluntness) that she become his mistress. Without even waiting for her answer, he gave her the key to the secret studio that he used as a love nest and told her to meet him at three o’clock the next afternoon. Early the next morning, Leonora went to visit the place alone. She found it tasteless: It looked exactly like a motel room. Taking advantage of the fact that she was in her menstrual period, she covered her hands with blood and used them to make bloody handprints all over the walls in order to provide a bit of decoration for that anonymous, impersonal room. Buñuel never spoke to her again.
Alejandro Jodorowsky tells the story of the day Luis Buñuel was out-Buñueled by Leonora Carrington.  From "The Spiritual Journey of Alejandro Jodorowsky: The Creator of El Topo" [x]
