Christine, of course we know Art Clay is sponsoring it, but it is called Metal Clay World Conference, right?


Oh drat, good catch!!  I fixed it.  Sorry about that! 

Oh heavens!! I get that confused all the time:))  Thanks Gordon!!!

I kinda always think of it as the Jack Russel Clay conference:))


Jack Russel, huh?

 Yeah, Jackie's dog!!!!!  


 I get separation anxiety when I'm not around my pups!!!   I'm dog-centric!!! Used to have to go by registration booth a couple of time a day to get my fix...I mean he was like a narcotic......just a serotonin machine!!!:))) And when he jumped  up the makeshift box stairs to get the the counter and see if he could help check you in....I always melted on the spot...miss him!!!

You can pet my "Boys", Ann! They are coming to the Conference with me :-)

Oh, yeah, I wondering if they're bringing their new dog?


Laurie, you're bringing your dogs? What kind?

Gordon, we're driving in from Tennessee. Tucker is part Chihuahua & Pomeranian and Bandit is part Chihuahua and Terrier. Both are from a shelter and they are now 2 1/2 years old. My Yorkie passed away one month before the last MCWC. As soon as I returned from Chicago, I adopted these two little guys.

Ah, looking forward to seeing them and you folks again! Sounds like a long drive. But then everything sounds like a long drive to a Hawaii native.


Looking forward to seeing you too, Gordon. We love car travel and so do the "Boys" :-)
Oh Seriously!!!! Wow!!!! I would bring mine but they would probably freak out in a plain!!!
Two part Chi's!!! I'm gonna die of happiness when I meet them!!!! I'm so sorry about your Yorkie....they are so wonderful!!!

"My apologies for the "monkey in a cage" terminology. It seems cavalier. I was thinking of the so called "Artist in Residencies" that are supposed to be visible to tour groups etc. Surely, there are "Artist in Residencies…"

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.

More information about the book, exhibitions, press and other hurrahs here.
