As Co-Chair for the 2016-2017 Willamette Ceramics Guild I hope to encourage all members of the Guild to – at the very least – put a picture of yourself on the WCG Website. Even better – type in something about you and your involvement in pottery. I know that there are many people in the guild who don’t know everyone in the guild. It is hard to put names to all the faces, especially for me! When I first moved to Corvallis 6 years ago, and even before I joined the Guild, I went to the WCG Website a lot and clicked on “more” after each potters name to try to learn who was who and a little something about them. Whenever there was a photo of the potter – that really helped! But many people had no information about themselves to click on, including me. I am intimidated by computers and I didn’t try to get any info about myself on the website, until now. But since I really want to encourage you all to use your page – I’m starting to use mine. I thought I would start out by just posting a few of the pots I have made since coming to Corvallis in 2010. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to make these pots in the wonderful studio at Benton Center.
