Catch the Excitement

A note from Marcia

Over the last several weeks there has been significant progress on our developing web site. I have met several times with our web designer, Randy Blake (who is generously donating his time and expertise), creating a site that will highlight the accomplishments of Clay Network and individual members alike. A number of writing and editing projects loom in the near future but the ground work is set and the page formats are looking good. Our blog link will be featured prominently and Lisa will be able to continue her amazing up-to-date notifications with ease. In the very near future, Randy will meet with the Board to present the current layout and discuss additions, changes, and links.
Additional preparation prior to launching our web site includes the need for quality photographs from each member who would like to be numbered in the Member's Gallery. To this end, the program presented at our next meeting will cover photographing ceramic work. Artist, teacher and nationally recognized professional clay artist Vina Schimmer be on hand to discuss not only digitally photographing ceramic artwork but composition, lighting and economical tips for getting the job done. Vina will not only lead us through the process but has asked that each member to bring their digital camera and one piece to photograph. There is nothing like one-on-one direction! This is one workshop that should not be missed!
I am looking forward to seeing you this July. Have a safe and productive summer.
