Themed Nomination – It’s National Craft Week – time to get your craft on!

American Craft Week is October 1-10th (is 10 days a week now?) and there are happenings in many states including a 2 day Crafting a Nation conference in Washington DC next weekend!

So, for this week’s themed nomination let’s choose a favorite craft and find a team member’s piece that represents that genre!

Ever since taking a wheel pottery class a couple years ago

(with my hubby, as a way to spend more time together, which sort of backfired when it turned out that I was a mess and couldn’t even get the centering part down and he was a natural and producing consistent, interesting pieces right away – ugh – although I think he had secretly taken a class before and I think the instructor didn’t like me because she kept calling me cat-astrophe)

anyway, since taking this class I have had an even greater appreciation for artists working with clay –

and I love this gorgeous piece by Artisan Clay that I think well represents the ceramic arts.
