I just got back from an exciting claying weekend in CT at the Clay connection retreat! I met up with lots of friends there and we had a blast. Several of us entered our creations in the Bottles of Hope challenge sponsored by the guild.
(visit http://www.bottlesofhope.org/ for more info on this)
I am happy to say that my bottle won a blue ribbon for the Best Sculpture category. There were so many great designs, and I think all came away winners as the descisions were very difficult for the judges! All entries will be donated to an individual being treated for cancer and each bottle is majically filled with well wishes and hope for it's recipient.
