We're back on the case!

I am currently contacting folks to see who is still interested in staffing the Clayworks gallery. Remember the Clayworks gallery?

I hope to have some more news here soon when I tally the yeas and nays and can arrange some details.

Stay tuned...

I'm sorry it seems like the gallery staffing has taken a back seat...

It has.

Everyone has been extremely busy lately so we'll will pick it up again in July and get it all set up.

Thanks for your patience.

All Fired Up

The 2009 All Fired Up fundraiser roared by last night. While attendance was lower than desired, the event was a lot of fun. If you missed it, you REALLY missed it. Clayworks took on a fairy tale appearance with the addition of thousands of Christmas lights. The whole place was transformed into a wonderland of friends, food, and art. Thanks to all the attendees, volunteers, and especially to Adrienne and Julie who really jump through hoops every year to create a great party and make it look easy.

With the silent auction, door prizes, music, food, beverages, desserts (yes, they deserve their own separate category!), and raku, things were hopping. Add to that the wild fun of the clay olympics and you will see how memorable the night was.

It was pretty warm, but at least us folks in the raku department didn't have to deal with inclement weather for a change. The raku went well and the pieces came out great. I'd like to give a big thanks to Nick, my raku partner-in-crime.

Directly following the big shindig, everyone pitched in and converted it back to a working clay studio in no time at all. It's an amazing transformation to witness.

A few of us late-nighters stayed and chatted for a while after everything was done. It was nice to relax and unwind a bit. There was talk of going to the Penguin, but that will have to be another time when we're all feeling a bit younger.
More pictures here, here, and here.

I have sent a list of names off to Adrienne to be added to the cash register. Expect to hear something soon whether it's a general meeting or several small ones.

In the meantime, does anybody have anything they'd like to post here? A discussion subject? An observation? A request? Anyone that's listed as an author on this site can create new posts. Please feel free to discuss anything studio or clay related here.

Who's taking which classes in the next session?

Who can make it to the studio either Saturday at 1:00 pm or sometime on Sunday? I would like to find out who is interested in staffing the gallery and work on making some decisions on our course of action.

Please let me know if you can make it either day.
