Artists Head to Baltimore

Polymer clay artists from around the world are on their way to Synergy in Baltimore. England’s Carol Blackburn sent these pictures of her colorful, cheery bowls that will be offered in the silent auction.

Israel’s Iris Mishly shopped ’til she dropped in NYC and is blogging about it as she rubs her feet and prepares for the flight to Baltimore. Browse her Flickr photos from the comfort of your home.

Germany’s Bettina Welker blogs about a layover in Cincinnati that she’s dreading. Wish I could make her brief stay in Ohio more pleasant.

Melanie West is unveiling a great new bangle design that she’ll be selling and Martha Aleo has pictures of the bracelets she’s added to the auction.

Check in with PCDaily to attend the conference virtually. I’m gathering all my techno gear, cameras and batteries to keep you in touch with the action.

LAST MINUTE DONATIONS: Bring an auction item with you to the conference. There’s still time! Simply fill out this form and present the item at your check-in (there are forms at the desk as well).

    Thanks for the plug, Cynthia! I’ll also be putting an item in the auction, but I don’t have a photo of it to share here.

    Looks like there’s going to be fantastic work up for auction at Synergy. I just wish I wasn’t taking Seth’s workshop at ArtWay because I’m spending all my money at their wonderful store. UGH! I’ll just have to put some bucks in my shoe right now, so I’ll have some cash for the auction.

    See you soon!!

        I will be adding images from Synergy to the NPCG online photo gallery as well as to my Flickr page.

        Looking forward to meeting all of y’all!

          If there is anything I can do to make Bettina have a better layover in Cinci…Let me know….I’m 15 minutes away frm the airport!!!

          • reply Bettina Welker ,

            that’s too kind Shirley – but I guess leaving the airport is not possible. I will take a book with me and hope, that the 5 hours will fly by quickly:)

            • reply Bettina Welker ,

              I’m leaving in half an hour and will be at the Cincinnati airport at 3:05 pm – so if anybody is waiting there as well, look for me….

              see you tonight or tomorrow morning
