I’ve been sick as a dog since returning from NCECA- a major chest cold! I think the flying from Australia- the getting to Kansas City- and the fury of trying to see everything/do everything in two days took its toll! I thought I could get there on Thursday early, but as the airlines can rule your life- I only got to Kansas City about 4pm- not enough of the day- but we made the most of it- and Friday was crazy- so much fun! Saturday- not much going on except final speeches- I’m ADD and can’t sit through that- as a former academic I’m sort of done with all the theoretical shit- I’m down to basics- that’s why the exhibit hall was my cup of tea!!! Solutions to problems!!! New tools!!
*so many potters in the USA!!! Lots of diverse work- I think in Australia the “type” of pottery that is seen as good or in style narrows too much.
*nothing you want to make is wrong- it’s all good and ok!
*potters are a great group of people!
Here’s a photo tour of my NCECA:
Don’t miss it next year in Portland- start planning now!!!
