Shrinemont sharing

July 12, 2012 · 4 comments

It has been said that the polymer clay community is a very generous one and this has certainly been our experience.  Many times our messages in this blog have included deeply grateful thanks to polymer people who have encouraged us in a variety of ways.  We feel like we can’t always convey adequately how touched we are and that is why it is so amazingly special when people like Cynthia Tinapple come and visit us and we can show how thrilled we are.

And so again, we wish we could personally give some huge thank you hugs to a group of very generous polymer artists. Earlier this year, the artists at the Shrinemont gathering had an auction and raised over $1000 for us.  They also said a wonderful group Namaste to us as you can see in this fantastic photo above.  We especially want to thank the tenacious Judy Belcher who made sure that the money actually made it to us.

We feel very honoured to be part of such a loving and supportive community and hope that our work shares some of the wholeheartedness, generosity and hope that we see in the people around us.  If any of you do make it over, we’d make sure you are thanked (felicitated in fact!) properly. You’d look a bit like Cynthia in this photo here!  Dhanyabad.  Thank you.

Having been to Nepal myself and seen the living conditions, I also saw many many talented craftspeople and was so very pleased that we were able to raise the money to help support their wonderful work…..Jean Cohen
