Crafthaus is sending a blogger to NCECA: Mary Obodzinski will be at the conference and report back to crafthaus about daily events and insights. Like other bloggers that have gone to Synergy2 and SNAG, these first hand accounts are invaluable not only to those in the field who cannot attend their conferences, but also to those not working in the medium. No harm in looking outside of your box somtimes ! There's so much to see and learn. Thank you, Mary for giving us the opportunity to look over your shoulder a bit. Much appreciated !

Please sign up here for our conference group and be in the know about the exciting things going on in the ceramic world !

NCECA 2010, 44th ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Theme: INDEPENDENCE
March 31-April 3, 2010 • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania Convention Center • 1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107

NCECA 2010: INDEPENDENCE, celebrates the individual and the choices they make. An independent spirit is necessary to tear down existing walls, to explore new ideas and to create work that pushes conventional understanding of one medium. An independent spirit is also necessary to maintain tradition, to be bound loosely by historical precedent and function. NCECA 2010 celebrates the independent spirits of traditionalists and groundbreakers.



The city of Philadelphia will host, for the third time, the NCECA annual conference. The 44th conference will take place from March 31 - April 3, 2010. Sited in Center City Philadelphia, the Convention Center and conference hotels are perfectly located to take advantage of the city’s vibrant urban nightlife, close to restaurants, shopping, bars and clubs.

The Clay Studio, NCECA’s local co-producer, has worked very hard to create an interesting, challenging and well-rounded program. Area Schools, Universities, Museums, Galleries, and Non-Profit and Alternative spaces will play host to exhibitions. Exhibitions will celebrate the incredible diversity of the material, clay, focusing on functional objects and tableware, sculpture, installation and performance. Both the conference and the city of Philadelphia are sure to engage and delight.

NCECA 2011, 45th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
March 30-April 2, 2011 • Tampa/St. Petersburgh, Florida
Tampa Convention Center • 333 South Franklin Street, Tampa, FL 33602

So I am all packed, almost. My flight leaves at 8:50am from ORD & I'll arrive in Philadelphia at 11:45am. I will be going straight to the hotel & dumping my luggage, then dashing to the conference headquarters to catch a "continuous tour shuttle #2" to a group of galleries which will include the Student show & Magic Gardens. I am hoping to get checked in to the conference so I won't have to wait in the huge slow lines on Thursday morning. Terry Gross (Fresh Air) of NPR will be giving the keynote speech at the Opening Ceremonies. I'll be sure to take photos & sum up my day tomorrow nite...

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!
