Contest Clarification

Although I have already received over a dozen 12x12 pics from readers all over the world, I feel that some clarification is in order since the announcement of the contest was an impulsive one which landed below the lead of yesterday's blog post.

First off read this post from yesteryear to get some background on the idea of 12 x 12.

The basic idea is to get off our duffs [sorry, cousin], away from our social networking, away from those seemingly urgent emails, your favorite pottery bloggery, away from everything! Just darken the doorstep of your favorite workshop and get to work!

The assignment:
  1. Get to work and make 12 things before noon.  Midnight is only acceptable if you have a day job. Respect the clock in whatever time zone you might be. Get a move on! 
  2. If you are throwing, glazing, packing, firing, it matters not. All good honest work will be accepted. 
  3. Once you have satisfied this very simple assignment, proudly take a picture of your productivity!
  4. Send me the picture, preferably a jpeg or a png that is of decent composition and clarity, not too big, not too small.
  5. Send it to michael@sawdustanddirt.com no later than midnight of the Ides.
  6. Be sure to include your name, a caption and/or your web site
Now for the fun stuff,

After the deadline I will assemble a blog post with all of your wonderful hard work and productivity. Each submission will get a number according to their order of submission and on Sunday night, I will spin ye olde random number generator and announce the winner.

What does the winner win?  Well I guess I will stroll through the showroom and pick out a nice piece of pottery! How's that sound? I will pick something and post it here in the next day or so.

SO, are you in?

Let's see what you got!
