I'm pretty excited and needed to share it with someone.

After three and one half years in pottery I decided to enter my first =
juried art competition at the Foothills Art council in a neighboring =
city. All sorts of media were represented from paintings, mixed media, =
fiber, sculptor and pottery, 76 pieces all together.

I entered a tall vase about 18 inches high with a closed in neck and =
four lugs around the top with an ash glaze.

They called me Saturday morning and informed me I had won second place, =
nice ribbon, 100 bucks and the piece sold too, another 180 bucks. Man =
was I happy !!!!!!

Second place in my first show, still can't believe it.

Thanks for listening!!
