This past week I was hard at work preparing for my thesis defense and spending time in the studio. My friends and classmates were in Seattle Washington attending the NCECA conference. NCECA is the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. I was bummed I couldn’t be there but I have been fortunate to attend a few of these conferences in the past. Every time I leave filled with images of artwork, new technical information, and a mind exploding with ideas. I recommend NCECA for anyone who wants to learn about ceramics, see more ceramics in person then you have seen in your life, and have a wonderful time meeting arists. Next year the conference will be held in Houston Texas and I plan to attend. The following year Milwaukee Wisconsin and I can’t miss that one with half of my family residing in Wisconsin!
