Vancouver clay guild meeting

I joined the Vancouver clay guild last year.  I figure if I can drive an hour south to go to the Northwest Polymer Clay Guild meeting, I can drive an hour and a half north to the Vancouver clay guild meeting.  They graciously let me join and they are such a nice group of people.  They usually meet for several hours on a Saturday and have a mini-clay day as well as a short business meeting.

The meeting was today, and as usual, I forgot to take pictures for most of the day.  I did get a couple though.  Here's a pic of something Nancy made at one of the Clay Carnivals (2008 I think she said?)--it's so cute!

And here's one of a basket I just love!  I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember the lady's name (I'm SO terrible with names).

I managed to get a few things accomplished.  Nancy showed us how to do a snowflake cane.  Here's my effort:

Here's an angel ornament (front and back):

And a slightly larger ornament:

I had a great time, and I'd like to give a heartfelt "Thank-you!" to Shannon for driving.  She has a comfy, roomy truck and it was nice to have company on the way.


  1. Hey Cat...wonderfull to see you both yesterday. Always a treat to see your gorgeous work!

  2. Hi Cathy. Thank you for your wonderful review of the VPCG!!! We are delighted to have you and Shannon as our members. We are a sister group and so close in distance. Looking forward to your next journey north...

  3. That is a neat way to begin a basket!
