New opportunities are here for the Southern Arizona Clay Artists.
The nominating committee is conducting a search for leaders for 2016. The slate is to be voted on at the September general meeting and will work side-by-side with those currently in position before assuming their roles in January.
It will be bittersweet to step away from my position on the Board of Directors at the close of this year. I have enjoyed meeting many new people and contributing to the future of this great organization that I have volunteered with over the years. The new found time, however, will afford me the opportunity to grow Flying V Studio (and perhaps even a garden).
The Lew Sorensen Community Center affords me the opportunity to do so many things.
I volunteer by mixing all the lovely ^10 glazes used in their gas fired reduction kiln, and in the pottery classes, I have met many exciting students at all levels of proficiency. The dreams of each student come alive in the classes I have attended, and I must admit the teachers are all so very encouraging and willing to share their experience in clay. The pottery results at Lew Sorensen are far different from that at Flying V where I fire to ^5 in an electric kiln and use many pastels in my ever changing color palette. The exposure to both is a challenge I thoroughly enjoy.
