Since your hands are probably already muddy as you make bowls for EBD, think about making something(s) this month to enter in the upcoming CDA exhibition “Fire, Form and Function”, too. The exhibition doesn’t open until April 18th, but applications with photos are due on March 11th. For those who may not be familiar with the judge, A. Blair Clemo, his mugs are featured on the cover of the January issue of Ceramics Monthly. If you’re not currently a CDA member, consider joining to enter the show…there’s prize money (and local fame) to be had. - Rich
