They have in the past.  MC and Visa for sure typically.  Beyond that, Richard will probably know. =)

Hi All

I have a Sea Shepherd rucksack I'd like to donate that is signed by Capt Paul Watson & RDA. I also have a flag from MTM signed by RDA I'd like to donate.

Hope to hear how I can do this. I can send pics.

Thanks
Suzie

Hi Suzie,

Those would be fantastic thank you. We wil have donation collection points at the Homecoming - at the registration desk or the Gatecon table in the dealer's room.

If you could send photos to me at gatecon.events@gmail.com that would be great.

   We will be showcasing some of the wonderful items that have been donated to the Homecoming Auction starting with three Raku masks hand-made by our guest Garwin Sanford.



    The masks are called 'Rage' for the one with the open mouth scream and the one with the head dress is 'Wisdom' while the larger piece is 'Siren'.  Garwin says "the hair is stylized sea foam and the dress is meant to be kelp. I thought that seeing it is for Sea Shepherd that this piece was appropriate."


RAGE


WISDOM


SIREN

    "All these pieces are Raku clay and glazes which are fired in an outdoor kiln where I reach in to a 1800 degree oven.  I take the pieces out with my hands in leather and kevlar gloves and face protection to carry them from the kiln to the raku table where I place the pieces in wood shavings on a bed of sand. 

    It ignites  the shavings and I place a cover over the piece to smother the fire. However the 1800 degree clay on shavings wants to burn so it quickly uses up the oxygen in the cover and then begins to draw oxygen out of the glaze and clay. At what is determined to be the ideal time I remove the cover and as oxygen returns to the glaze it  blooms with colour where I must cool it immediately to freeze the bloom where I deem it to be ideal.

    I spray it with water to set the colour.  It is a very dynamic process, holding 1800 degree clay in your hands is a visceral experince to say the least as it is like having a living thing in your hands as it glows red hot."


The main Homecoming Auction takes place in the evening of Saturday 10th September 2016 with silent auctions running at other times during the event.

Those masks by Mr. Sanford are amazing. I'm always impressed by people who can do things like that (since I have exactly zero artistic talent myself). I particularly like the 'Wisdom' one.

personally the masks don't do a thing for me and actually think they are ugly.I would prefer to bid on a kiss an hug from garwin instead of the masks.

Hi

I still have a Sea Shepherd rucksack signed by RDA & Capt Watson, also a flag signed by RDA that I want to donate to this & need to be able to post to someone in the UK who's going, as it's now a definite I can't go.  I have asked Claire, who'd originally said she could take this for me, but am putting feelers out as well.

Please let me know if this is something you'd be able to do (via PM I guess) & I'll get them in the post to you ASAP.

Thanks
Suzie
