Hi,
This is Judy Frederick in Baltimore, MD. Is anyone living in my area going
to the NCECA. I would love to talk part in the mug exchange but am unable to
come up with the funds for the trip this year. I also would like to donate a
mug for the scholarship.
Also I will be coming to the Baltimore ACC this week, but will not have a
chance to fire by then. (I do not have my own kiln) Maybe we could meet. I'd
love to meet each and every CLAYART person that is taking part in the
Baltimore ACC. If you are interested in meeting me to chat, please email me
you booth number and I'll be sure to find you.
Good luck to all from CLAYCRAZY in Baltimore where it's 14 degrees today,
which is really cold for us here.

Hi everyone: I was sort of hoping to find out who got my mug in the mug
exchange?

Here is the list of cups that the contingency from south Florida have
brought
home!!

Susan Maguire, studio potter, brought home Russel Font's lovely little
orange cup.

Stephanie Hubbard, also a studio potter, has a cup made by E. and I
Woods-Fasimpaur, from Dayton , Ohio...

John Foster, assoc. professor of art, Broward Community College, brought home
two cups..... One from Phyllis M Greene from Kingston, Wa, and one from Wendy
Ferron Keeler, Monument Beach, Ma

Ed Yonkman, the big guy at the door during the exchange, has a lovely cup
from Kris Bliss, Anchorage, Ak.

Many thanks to you all, and we would love to hear where 'our' cups went!!

Earl Brunner on sun 2 apr 00

Since we all had to fill out two cards or include two
business cards,
(one for the drawing and one for the mug, maybe it would be
nice since
we should all have e-mail (being on clayart and all) if
everyone that
got a mug e-mailed the maker. If that isn't possible this
year, maybe
next year. Everyone was at the dance by the time I got
there.

Ah ha! I was not sure that I had the name right, as the
card was hand written. Please tell Ed Yonkman I got his cup.

Well, I failed again this year. Can I blame the rain in part? I was so
determined. Actually made a mug with a handle.

Then I didn't know where to go to find the Omni so I sent it to the Clayart
room with a friend who was staying there. On Friday night when I finally
got to the Clayart room with another friend who knew the way, of course
everything was over and all the leftover mugs were taken up.

I am not crying. This is still a notch up from my performance two years ago.
I did get the mug made, with a handle, and delivered. Of course it was
unmarked except for my stamp on the base.

So, who got it? It was fired in electric oxidation. A while base glaze.
There is a greenish rectangle shape and a mottled blue lacey bit stamped on
or decoration. A smallish, one finger handle. Anyway, I am guilty of one of
the unmarked mugs.

NCECA really does overwhelm me with so many choices. I'll do better in KC.
A little progress every year.

I am signed off list for a couple weeks and reading the digest. Between
NCECA and going off to Tennessee for the Gail Nichols firing this next
weekend I just knew I couldn't keep up with the discussion. So, reply to me
off list about the mug thing.

I'm sure I'll find it, I've heard references to the ClayArt room, but don't
remember any recent ones about where it will be. Could some one tell us one more
time?

no..... it does not have to be a mug but still must be small enough to
travel in a suitcase

Yes.. we want everyone to participate.. it is not about product .. it is
about the process of meeting and sharing with other clayarters...of course
some are very mean about pots they do not like but i try VERY hard to keep
the exchange about the sharing the love of clay, communication and pots.

To Clayarters-
With all this talk of NCECA please donít forget the 7th Annual Clayart
Mug Exchange. The exchange will take place in the clayart room at 6:30pm
on Friday.
1. Make a mug-(no bigger than 9"x9"x9") actually make 2 and donate one to
the NCECA scholarship fund. If you do not make mugs it can be any SMALL
item of clay that you produce.
2. Please place 2 cards inside the donated mug (it would be wonderful if
you would include the method of construction, clay-cone fired-glaze on
the card)
3. Drop off your Clayart mug at the Clayart Hospitality room. Find and
print your name neatly in the drop off book kept in the room.
4. On Friday afternoon come to the exchange at 6:30 pm and pick up your
new mug made by another Clayart member. Plan to stay after the exchange
to meet the maker of your brand new Clayart mug.
5. Since there is a very well organized stay-at-home exchange, the one at
NCECA is limited to people attending NCECA who are able to meet at 6:30
for the exchange. We find itís much more fun when you get to meet your
partner face to face.
6. An important change from previous years is that only 1 item per
person may be entered into the exchange.
More details will follow on some exciting changes to the actual exchange.
For now, your co-chairs David Hendley and Cheryl Litman are working out
the details.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.

Well It was once again a fun and exciting time at the old Clayart mug
exchange. It was just a shame that everyone could not be adult and take
there chance at selecting a mug with the rest of us. My friends and I
wanted to be at the Shino opening to see and share in the excitement with
fellow WV potter Malcolm Davis. We understood that if we were not back by
the time of the drawing we would only get to choose from what was left on
the table. To say the least it was a bit saddening that we had to choose
from the leavings of someone that was so childish that they had to open the
stapled bags, and I can only assume, be sure they got there best mug. WELL
GUESS WHAT YOU DIDN'T GET IT. Any mug I got would be the best one but I
would have liked to been left with the memory that the exchange was a fair
and anonymous drawing, not one of all short straws!

I received a very nice mug and ornament from Dan
Bowen yesterday. It (the mug, that is) made a nice
cup of tea this morning. Thanks, Dan.
