24 April 2009

OM gosh!! they say these days. Yesterday we heard one piece was going to the Unity and Diversity Exhibition at the Canadian Pavilion of the Cheoungju International Biennale in South Korea and today a second piece ...and what a second....assuming all goes is called " The Secret to the Return of the Cod" and I have attached an image of Linda Yates in front of the piece. Not only are we told is it going to Korea but next year it will be heading to the 2010 Olympic games in Vancouver Canada!! (Update: May 11th...oops... the final decisions on Vancouver are not completed...time to cross the fingers and toes, eh!) We are over the moon and them some. Thank you to all the selection committees for deciding we had something to offer for the Canadian Show...what an honour!

March & April News Flashes

Big News "1" The reconstructed website is almost done ...1-2 weeks max. and it will be unveiled!! Any one thinking of creating or recreating their site multiply the estimated effort by 3 or 4 augh!!!!! But do I love the new site? Yes, YEs, YES!!!

Bigger News "2" NCECA in Phoenix was fabulous. We were selected to lead a discussion session on Salt & Soda firing! And the amazing Soda fire innovator Gail Nichols from Australia was there to field questions!! Thank you so much Gail! Just love NCECA...1700 images on just one of our three cameras!

Biggest NEWS "3" Best for last... we just were informed that one of our clay pieces has been accepted to Korea - 'Unity & Diversity' Exhibit - Cheoungju International Biennale - September 23 -November 1, 2009 via the Canadian Craft Federation. Wow...what an honour. Dancing in the streets time!!!!

Lots more but I'll add to this tomorrow. How about a pic from NCECA which might surprise some because it's not clay rather it is ceramic or rather glass I should say Dale Chihulli (spelling error I'm sure).
