Crafthaus Scholarship Recipient 2011: Seana Higgins blogs NCECA

NCECA 2011, 45TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

March 30-April 2, 2011 • Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida
Tampa Convention Center • 333 South Franklin Street, Tampa, FL  33602

Hello, and welcome to the blog NCECA 2011 Tidal Forces: The Next Wave! I, admittedly pilfered the title from the conference itself but figured it most appropriate to catch your attention. 

 

I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself. As you can see, I'm Seana, and I am a (let's say evolving) ceramic artist and educator living in Chicago, Illinois. This will be my first blogging experience, and I am honored to have the opportunity to share my voice in this space with members of Crafthaus. I was, at first, a little apprehensive about beginning this first posting (as you can tell from the dates for the blog) but I think it'll be just fine. My fears of the internet have already begun to subside as I type and I know you, my audience, will help me out along the way.

 

I'd like this to be not only a space where I create a monologue, rather, a discussion. I invite you to ask questions and post your own experiences with ceramics, NCECA trips past and present, and anything else you'd like to share as we go along.

Jill, unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it to that show. I was limited in what I saw due to difficulties in transportation but maybe someone else will have some. Thanks, seana.

If you are at NCECA and go to the Cafe Hey Cup show could you take some pictures? My cups made it to Florida, but not me. Cheers!!!

 

Request from Jill Marleah Bell.
