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.

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!

Starting Points

My love affair with fine metals started several years ago when I was able to take a Young Artists Workshop at Moore College of Art and Design.  After my first jewelry class and I was pretty much hooked.  I continued chasing the dream and received my BFA in Studio Art, concentrating in Metals from Rowan University, while studying under Jill Baker Gower. I am grateful that I was able to find my focus, enameling, and really develop a body of work within the few years following my gradation.…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With…See More
