***SAVE THE DATE***

Please join us for our bi-monthly meeting to be held on Sunday, September 8, 2019 from 2p-5p at the University of North Florida Ceramics Department in Jacksonville (Address: 1 UNF Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32224, Building 45, Room #1504)

We are excited to have member Ray Gonzales, Owner/Operator of Atlantic Coast Kilns as our guest artist. Ray is an artist and educator whose scope of knowledge in the ceramic world is vast; ranging from production, glaze chemistry, kiln maintenance and every aspect in between. He will be providing an interactive talk on all things kilns loosely titled "Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Kilns, But Were Afraid to Ask". Now is the time to bring all of your kiln questions you've been saving.

Our meeting will kick off with a gourmet potluck, "Meet and Eat" social session, followed by the general meeting, and then Ray's talk.

We also typically have a FREE raffle for a pottery related item, as well as our Lending Library that consists of a wide range of pottery related materials that can be "checked out" by our members.

Our meetings are free and open to the public.

Clay Network Bi-Monthly General Meeting Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 2p-5p

Hello All,

Happy Spring!   Our next meeting is fast approaching.  The meeting will be held on the first Sunday of the month on May 5th at 2pm, rather that the usual second Sunday due to the conflict with Mother's Day.
Vice President Kate Thomes had kindly offered to host our meeting at her home in St. Augustine Shores.  Please contact us for address and details.

Treasurer and long-time member Mary Matheson will lead the hands-on demonstration with tile making and sgraffito techniques.  Sample tiles will be provided by Clay Network.  Please bring your favorite carving tools, an apron, and something to put you tile in for transport home. Thanks so much Mary for stepping in and being such a strong supporter of Clay Network.

Our meetings usually consist of a gourmet potluck, "Meet and Eat" social session, general meeting, and a demonstration.  
We also typically have a FREE raffle for a pottery related item, as well as our Lending Library that consists of a wide range of pottery related materials that can be "checked out" by our members.
Our meeting are free and open to the public, so consider inviting a friend and joining in the fun. 
Our last meeting in March was a great success and The Atlantic Beach Arts Market was a perfect location and we truly appreciate the opportunity to have our meeting at this location.  
I have attached the meeting minutes for the March 2019 meeting, a picture collage, and a few notes that I took about bead making.
