Seeing NCECA: A Student’s Perspective

As a student of ceramics at Berea College, I’m always observing and learning about the ceramics world. NCECA, however, takes the fire of my learning to a whole new cone pack.This blog will capture my excitement of the before, during, and after of the 2013 NCECA. I will talk to ceramicists, explore dazzling exhibits, and embrace all that the NCECA paradise has to offer. This blog will be the log in which I jot all my gushing observations!See More

A Student’s Perspective: Critiques, Creators, and Crazy Dancing

NCECA: A Student Perspective, Day 2 Duncan BlountI wish I had an NCECA pause button! Yesterday was nonstop meeting/learning/seeing/experiencing/wowing.  Here are some of this student’s favorite moments, that maybe you can revisit today:Student CritiqueThe student critique was incredibly helpful! My critique was with a potter named Brian and he took a look at some of my salt-fired work. It was interesting to consider consistency in my mugs; my handles take on a thin wildness that the smooth,…See More

Seeing NCECA: A Student’s Perspective, Day 1

Student Perspective Day 1, Duncan Blount What an amazing first day! Here are some of the incredible highlights:The First Purchase!After registration, I sat down with some other members at a small table not too far away. We all dug into our NCECA bags like it was Christmas, and then dove into our program schedules. I circled the events for the day (last year I was frantically running around everywhere with no plan), and headed to the Gallery Expo.After gawking at the initial displays, I made my…See More

Ceramics Outreach Program: Berea Walk with the Arts

Walk with the Arts: Fourth Grade Craft Outreach Program

Fourth grade is a spectacular frame of mind. The energy, bravery, and creativity of the children I talked to and demonstrated for never faltered, despite the pouring rain! I spotted similarities in each group and compared them with my own fourth grade experience: I saw the class clown (which was me!), the super-smart-shy-girl, and even that restless trouble maker. And amazingly, every student that I presented to…

Great looking work, Duncan!...I'd like to hear your impressions of the program at Berea College sometime. From what i can tell, it seems like a really strong place to learn ceramics and pottery, in particular.

Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! If your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please refer to the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab for questions.
