Clayathon 2016


Another Clayathon has come and gone. Laura Tabakman  shared her techniques and explained her design process and sources of inspiration.  I didn’t make many items this year but got to try my hand at making hollow triangle beads and other hollow geometric forms. We made a trip to the Shore Diner and the family-owned Athenian Garden where the service is slow but the food makes it more than worth it.  I brought a bottle of Tullamore Dew to share and it went rather quickly because so many people got to enjoy it. My brother and sister-in-law came to hang out on Sunday.  I made new friends, saw old friends amd enjoyed a drink before the fire on the Stocktom Seaview lobby.

Here are some pictures.

It was great to see Lisa Clarke who hasn’t been able to make the last few Clayathons. Read her blog post here.

People Who Clay Together. . .


Stay together?  Not always, but it certainly seems to be the case with  the South Jersey Clayathon that Arlene Groch has sponsored for the last 11 years with the help of some dedicated volunteers including Susan GrossSherman Oberson and Joyce Miskowitz.  I have attended it since it began and am looking forward to going this year.

Laura Tabakman is this years’ guest artist.  I love her work and look forward to  her presentations.


But most of all,  I am looking forward to sitting in front of the fireplace in the lobby of the Stockton Seaview Resort with old and new friends and sharing stories and a cup of something comforting.
