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 itemsâ€™ and then type in â€˜teamecoetsyâ€™ to find an item or items youâ€™d like to nominate for the weekâ€™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!
