Clayart Mug Exchange Guidelines
The 9th Annual Clayart Mug Exchange will take place here in the Clayart Room at
6:45 pm on Friday, March 16.
Here are the particulars:
The Exchange is open to all members of the Clayart Internet Discussion Group.
1. Pick a mug to exchange. Actually, it does not have to be a mug, but a ceramic object
that you
made and think another Clayarter would like. Since all the pieces will be put in bags for
the exchange, it must fit in a paper bag that measures approximately 5” X 6” X 9”.
2. Please place your business card or a handwritten card with your name and contact
information inside the mug. It would be wonderful if you would include technical
information about the mug, such as method of construction, firing temperature, and
glaze on the card.
3. Drop off your mug here at the Clayart room any time on Thursday or Friday. Print your
name neatly in the Mug Exchange Register, which will be in the Clayart room. We all
love looking at all the mugs during the conference, so bring your piece for this Clayart
Members “exhibition” as early as possible.
4. Come to the Clayart room between 5:30 and 6:30 Friday and retrieve your mug.
Hand it to a Muggette on Duty and they will put it in a paper bag, seal it, and place
it on the table. You will be given a ticket for the Mug Exchange. This time between
bagging your mug and the start of the exchange is a great festive time to visit with
all your Clayart friends.
The doors will open at 6:45 for the exchange. You will need your ticket to
enter the room. You will be sent to the table, where you will choose a mug in a bag.
So others may choose, please don’t hang around the table after you have your bag.
5. After everyone present has picked a mug, try to get together with both the person
who received your mug as well as the person who made the mug you picked. Part of
the point, and fun, of the Mug Exchange is to meet new Clayart friends.
Since there is a very well organized stay-at-home exchange, the one at NCECA is limited to Clayart Members attending NCECA, who are able to meet at 6:30 for the exchange. We find it’s much more fun when you get to meet your partner face to face. Also, only one item per person may be entered into the exchange.
