Visions In Clay 2011

The relaunch of the Visions In Clay exhibition last year was a smash hit. It was a fantastic celebration of what's happening in form, surface and texture, and once again proved to be a "Who's Who" of emerging talent in North America. I'm expecting no less this year with over $1800 in prize money up for grabs.

Here's a quick link to enter online...

Just caught up on your bubble- to me the most simple and useful piece of art you can own is a coffee mug.
Simple, useful and tactile.
And connects you with a maker every day- you just have to remember and take the time to bring those things in to your life.
I enjoyed your can of worms!

Art with a big "A" can be small enough to fit in a personal space... period.
It's all a matter of scale.
