On the next few pages you will see all the wonderful bottles made by the contestants of the Bottles of Hope Challenge 2002 that was held at the recent Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild Clay ConneCTion. The judges were Marie Segal, Jody Bishel, and Leigh Ross, and the prize for Best in Show, pictured here, was provided by Jody Bishel. Here at PCC we commend everyone who devoted their time and creativity to this most charitable of efforts, and we know your beautiful work will truly bring hope to those who receive them.
