CALL FOR ENTRIES
We are pleased to announce the call for entries for our fifth annual members’ juried competition.

Deadline to submit is September 5, 2013.
Susan Filley will share information about her glazes. She fires in a gas kiln creating rich colors and microcrystalline surface detail. Her uniquely varied forms seem to demand a wide array of glaze approaches from layered crystal mattes to the simple elegance of her opal clear. She is one of the four presenters at Potters Council’s Altered Approach to Clay conference.
