Clayathon 2014: What I Made

Clayathon is our annual winter shore retreat. For the last two years, we’ve held it at the lovely Seaview Hotel in Galloway, NJ. I try to make something of a plan before I go. Otherwise, I pack everything I own and get bogged down in all of the possibilities. This year, I had plans for four things:

1) Black and white spiky thing. Not achieved.

2) Bowl inspired by David Patchen glass.clayathon_bowl

3) An idea I’ve had kicking around for a while….a “spirograph” translucent cane.

4) Prototype a new bracelet shape. Achieved but not photographed.

But, as a bonus…..Emily Squires Levine gave me a colorful sheet made from her leftover can ends, which turned into nice mokume gane pieces.

Tile.

So a reasonably successful weekend….3 out of 4 goals achieved, a good time, and cocktails by the fire….all good.
