First, a note of thanks. I was happy to read recent posts to the List fro=
of you who have photos of your work in From a Slab of Clay. That you are=3D=
happy makes me happy. Second, I enjoyed spending time in the Clayart room=
while at NCECA in Seattle and enjoyed meeting several of you.
Now, to the call for submissions. I have started work on the second editi=
The Extruder Book. It has been twelve years since the first edition was=3D2=
published and the book is receiving a complete make-over - including all =
photography, all new demonstrations and a new gallery of work made with a=
extruder & dies.
You are cordially invited to submit photos of your own finished pieces ma=
wholly or partly, with an extruder & dies. For the book's gallery sec=3D
tion, I am=3D20
interested in functional pieces (e.g., vessels including teapots, cups, p=
dishes, boxes), sculptures, architectural installations (e.g., tile, pill=
frames) and musical instruments (functional only, please). If you have=3D20=
something but it doesn't fit into one of those categories, I'm still inte=
seeing your photos.
If you had a photo of your work in the first edition, I definitely want t=
photos of your latest work made using an extruder & dies.
Your image files should be large enough (minimum 1 MB) and of high enough=
resolution (300 dpi) to make them suitable for printing. Files can be in =
the common formats, .jpg, TIFF, .psd or RAW. Each photo file should be t=
with your first initial and full, last name and sequentially numbered (e.=
JSMITH1.jpg, JSMITH2.jpg, JSMITH3.jpg). Each submission should include a=3D=
document (.doc) file that contains descriptions of your photos. Each phot=
description should include the file name (as explained, above), the title=
work, if any, its dimensions in inches or centimeters, and some explanati=
how you made the piece. I'm interested in your firing method, the die sha=
you used and any special tools you used in completing the piece. If you u=
die you made I would like you to include a photo of the die.=3D20
IMPORTANT: In the document file please include your full name, address, e=
address and phone number.
Please send your CD to me at this address:
