I've been wanting to get back into ceramics, but I don't know where to start. I don't have a supply of clay or access to a kiln. I've dug clay before and fired it in a pit kiln, but I didn't have much success. There aren't any suppliers in my area that I know of, so I've thought about ordering online, but shipping will be brutal. Any suggestions?
I'm told there are places that charge a fee for kiln use or something, but I don't know where to look. I've thought about going down to the University and asking if they can squeeze my things in. Maybe I could ask where they get clay too?

Hi IC looking for some Portfolio tips.
I applied to several UK colleges and I have an interview at the end of the month with one, however, I'm not sure exactly what to put into my portfolio for this specific course. It's a HNC Art and Design – Visual Communication and the course details are - "Design and illustrative projects.
Branding, Use of Multimedia, Publishing and Packaging.
Researching, developing concepts and producing final commercial artwork."
What sort of things would be advantageous to have in my portfolio?
I'm aware that some colleges give you outlines as to what they expect, however, this one hasn't done that, or quite possibly hasn't gotten round to sending it out yet. But a heads up would be nice.
So any information or tips you guys can give for a portfolio for this specific course would be wonderful, pic unrelated.
thank you kindly in advance.

I'm taking a year off from school. I plan on going into hyperbolic time chamber mode and going hard on fundamentals. I think my fundamentals are lacking to a point, and if I really want to be a good illustrator/concept artist, those need to be up to snuff.
I AM EQUIPPED WITH:
-A SHIT TON OF ANATOMY BOOKS
-ART OF ____(LOTS OF THINGS)
-LOTS OF OTHER BOOKS, I LIKE BOOKS
I want to largely drill perspective, anatomy, and color/light/value. I'm well-aware of how each works to some extent, but these are fundamentals; I should know them backward and forward.
I'm after resources on perspective and c/l/v mostly, but I will take any and all resources. I am well-familiar with the sticky and what it has to provide, which is (largely) figurative. I have Perspective Made Easy's PDF, and might buy the book since I don't really like working from PDF (personal preference).
So, if you guys have anything, BRING IT ON. I will post a few pieces of mine, so if you have stuff that you think I should take a look at based on them, go for it.

Hi /IC/ hoping you can help, or maybe even agree with me to some degree
It's not the fact that I have no inspiration, as I do, I'm inspired by a lot of things, however, I like to follow projects if you can understand what I mean and I've searched online for art projects I could do, but I'm at an loss now as I've not came across anything.
If anyone knows of any sites that has timed art projects or anything similar (not the generators in the sticky) could you please direct me to them?
If this is hard to follow let me know, I'm on a shit tone of pain meds at the moment and I don't think my brain is translating what I'm trying to accomplish properly...
