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 thatÂ I was a mess and couldn’t even get the centering part down andÂ 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 likeÂ me because she kept calling me cat-astrophe)
anyway, since taking this class I have had an evenÂ greater appreciation for artists working with clay -
and I loveÂ this gorgeous piece by Artisan Clay that I think well represents the ceramic arts.
You can do a tag search on Etsy for â€˜all items’ and then type in â€˜teamecoetsy’ to find an item or items you’d like to nominate for the week’s theme.
Please send your nominations by Etsy convo to Cat at Polarity
The deadline isÂ 2PM ESTÂ Wednesday (tomorrow).
Winners will be chosen based on:
1. Picture Quality
2. Appropriateness to the Theme
Thanks and happy crafting!
