kind of a bubble of sorts. I only found Clayart 3 years ago and that =
was the first I had heard of the conference. I am in Lake Tahoe and am =
so happy the conference will be on the West coast this year. I am =
excited to meet new people and be involved in the mug exchange (I have =
done the Stay at Home mug exchange for the last two years). Being a =
part of Clayart for the last few years has been the best part of my =
ceramics education (as there are not many ceramic artists to get =
together with in Tahoe and our community college only allows me to take =
6 ceramic classes and I have hit my limit). I am so excited for March, =
but can anyone give me some insight on the "goings-on" at the =
