Clayathon 2013!!!!!

That’s where I plan to be this weekend. Here are some pictures from past Clayathons.

 

Clayathon 2010

I don’t know what I enjoyed more: watching Wilma Yost of Polymer Clay Express demonstrating the Dream Machine and trying it out for myself, watching Melanie West’s demos, catching some of Arlene Groch’s enthusiasm or having uninterrupted time to continue working through Polymer Clay Color Inspirations.

I clayed, drank whiskey, sat up until 7:00 am one night (morning?) claying and chatting, made new friends and saw old ones.
Everyone had a wonderful, relaxing time.  See you in 2011!

Arlene Groch: Polyaddict

 Let Arlene Groch’s story be a warning to all of you. “My totally out of control addiction to polymer clay had such an innocent birth in September, 2004”, she recalled. “I bought some clay and a couple of books to share an activity with my 8 year old grandson. He was mildly interested; I was hooked. Within a month I had decided to give up my 30 year career as a trial attorney so I could devote most of my time to playing with clay and attending workshops and classes. I set myself a one year goal of learning enough to be able to begin to develop my own style.”  To see more of Arlene’s one of a kind Mezuzah cases and jewelry, go to her site,PolyGemDesigns.

South Jersey Polyaddicts Clayathon 2008

Arlene Groch and the South Jersey Polyaddicts have done it again!  I had three days of clay, friendship and whiskey in a Days Inn on Tilton Road in Pleasantville New Jersey.  I had so much whiskey I can’t remember everyone’s name, so I left the pictures unlabled.   The cute figurines are by Sherman Oberson.  The beautiful caned bowls are by Emily Levine.  The Zen Earrings are by my roomie, Patti Claypal Underwood.  I am sorry I don’t remember everyone’s name.  If you made something and would like people to know, please leave a comment.  Oh, yeah.  The guy wearing the skunk on his head is Rob Yost.  I think the skunk was dead.  Rob’s long suffering wife Wilma came to hang out and demo some nifty new products from her business, Polymer Clay Express.
