Daily Clay brings you a new image of handmade ceramic art every day. These images have been selected by the editors of Ceramics Monthly, Pottery Making Illustrated, and Ceramic Arts Daily, the worlds two most popular ceramic art magazines, and the world's premier ceramic arts website.
The most recent week's images (7) are available for browsing at any given time. In the free version, you may add up to 20 images to your favorites library by pressing the star icon while viewing the image. Unlimited favorites are available in the full version.
Images can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and via email directly from the app, allowing you to add comments when sharing with friends.
You can also attach notes to any image, so whether you want to jot down thoughts about the work, record an observation for future classroom discussion, or write instructions for how you might try to make a similar piece yourself, this makes Daily Clay useful in the studio, in the classroom, and wherever you happen to be. Taking notes automatically adds an image to your favorites, so you won't lose your notes.
Your favorites can be sorted by 26 different categories, to make classroom discussions, studio research, and casual browsing both useful and entertaining.
Favorites are stored on your device so they are available for viewing even when you do not have an Internet connection. To remove images from your favorites, simply select “manage favorites” and select the image(s) in the list view that you would like to remove and hit “delete.” Deleted favorites cannot be accessed or restored after being deleted.

A wee bit of daily inspiration
As a potter, I like this app because I get one pic a day of a clay piece. This requires no effort on my part, no searching, no shopping. Sometimes I'm like, "Really?!" but more often I think, "Ooh, I want to try that!" You can see who made the piece by clicking on the info logo at the bottom. I have never had trouble with the app loading. It's for a pretty specific group, but most potters need a little shot in the arm from time to time - it's easy to get bored with the daily grind of one's particular style.
Most images do not provide detail and when they do it is usually just the artist's name and no details (e.g., low or high fire, clay body, methods, time period). Just a bunch of random images from back issues of ceramic monthly. Expectations were high considering the publishing group but sorely disappointed with the content. Uninstalled. Boooo!
When are you fixing this?
This app clearly has an issue. It's been a long time that pictures don't download everyday. And if you try to reinstall the app, even the paid full version, you lose all saved pictures in your gallery. It's taking to long to fix it.
