What I found curious was the cover of The Clay Times magazine
with our very own Sandy Miller's beauteous pieces.
During NCECA in the Clayart room Clay Times editor Polly Beach participated
in a very detailed and informative session on submissions to the magazine.
I was grateful for all the information on how and what to submit.
When I received the March/April with Sandy's pieces I noticed that the cover
shot seems pixilated and too low a resolution.
Now I realize they are working with a new format and have added a lot more
I'm happy... not complaining.... just curious as to what happened.

When I got a copy of the new Clay Times at NCECA, I flipped
to the back, to see how the photo I sent in with the column
turned out.
"Rich in a Community of Friends"?!!! You gotta be kidding,
how boring and lame!

Just as they changed the title of our joint column in 2004 from
the intriguing "Saskatoon, Saskatchewan", to the lackluster
"Time and Place", some unknown editor decided they had
a better idea.
I'm not kidding about Clay Times. Let them know what you
