Although I really, really wanted to attend NCECA, in the end I
just couldn't go. To relieve some of the disappointment I went by proxy.
I bought my friend Shirley (she was going) a disposable camera (with
flash); ran off pertinent information from Clayart and gave that to her;
then I gave her a dollar for the Clayart button; finally, I wrote a list
of people and events I wanted photographed. Thus armed she was my proxy
for NCECA and I have a wonderful idea of what went on.
Shirley attended the Clayart breakfast and took pictures of the
group. Now I can put faces to names of people like Jonathan Kaplan,
Louis Katz, Jennifer Boyer,Joe Molinari,Richard Aerni, Linda Blossom, Vince
Pitelka, Bacia Edelman and many more of you great Clayarters. Oh, and
there's a terrific picture of Carla Flati and Fussell Fouts. Thanks to
everyone who posed for pictures, it means a lot to me.
Not only was Shirley kind enough to attend the breakfast she also
took photos of the student show, the yummy work at Alfred, the cup sale ( I
should have sent more money!), Malcolm Davie's shino pots, and the
neat Orton Cone Box show. Even though I didn't get to attend the
sessions or see the displays, I have an idea of how they looked.
Best of all, I have my Clayart button, gee I feel like I was
really there! What a terrific event, almost as good as Clayart itself.
Fortunately, I have enough airmiles to go to Las Vegas. Next year I'll be
there taking pictures for Shirley.
>>> See you in Las Vegas, Marilyn, happy in Ailsa Craig on an overcast
morning getting ready for a day in the studio.
BIG P.S. Could someone in Australia please e-mail me privately about
Comet Hyakutake, when and where it will be visible. TIA

Barbe- pardon the interuption, but he data you need about the comet is
readily available, if you look quick-
See Science news for March 23, 1996, on page 183 (they number by the year) ;
there is a nice diagram.
You are almost too late, but not quite.
