NCECA 2018 was in Pittsburgh, PA. I got to drive down with my clay brothers; we had a blast! I think I spent most of my time watching Kevin Snipes hand build with porcelain. Being an artist of color who was still an outsider for not being "black enough," I related with him the most. Not to mention he likes to inject humor in his work, and HAND BUILDS with PORCELAIN. My clay people understand why that's sort of a big deal (well at least to me it is.)
We saw so many fantastic works, and got to visit the Standard clay facilities! NCECA is always a great time. Here's some highlights!
