NCECA is the event I look forward to every year! It is the BEST event for a young ceramicist eager for inspiration. What is it you may ask? It's a four day conference focused on the education of ceramics. AKA a muddy gathering of people who love clay in a city who's willing to have their downtown transformed into a dirty paradise. The committee gets as many galleries and businesses as they can to showcase sculptural and functional wares. In addition to that, there's panel discussions, demos, workshops, schools/residency/programs to talk to, vendors in the industry--not to mention all the parties that go on! It's really great.
This year it was in Kansas City, MO. I made sure to try out some BBQ, because what does CT know about BBQ? :P Anywhosies, here's some photos from my trip!
I'm TOTALLY looking forward the NCECA 2017, which will be in Portland OR! It'll be my first time on the west coast :). The conference hops all around the country so it doubles as a way for me to see different parts of the USA.
One last thing, The Phantastics played for the Potter's Dance (another annual thing NCECA does) and you HAVE to check them out. Slightly obsessed. I bought a shirt and a CD. No regrets.
Maybe I'll see you there next year!
