Hello Claybuds,
Just thought that I would chime in here to enlarge to what Tony has
said about FUSION. This year indeed marks its 30th anniversary and
the annual conference is going to be held at Wilfred Laurier
University in Waterloo, Ontario, the last week-end in May. That is
easy to get to crossing at Detroit or Buffalo from the states. The
two guests potters/artists are Cathi Jefferson from B.C. and Chris
Gustin from New England. For those coming from the states, it is a
very good deal because of your american dollar.
You don't have to be a member of FUSION to come to the conference. I
have been going to this conference ever since it began, if I can. It
is a great way to pick up information and techniques, learn from the
masters, and see old friends again. I look forward to it every year.
If you are interested in checking it out, go to the Fusion web-site

Nice article about your "Silently Convincing" show you curated Tony.
Good images too, if I do say so myself.

Working at a snail's pace in the studio again, looking out at lots of
fluffy white snow, lots of sunshine, and yesterday there were over 40
wild turkeys pecking away in -25 C weather.
