Sort of short, at least. I have only just returned to
Indiana, so NCECA was a bit different for me. It
was good to see a LOT of solid work from Indiana
clay folks. First chance I've had to see any, all my
time has been used up doing stuff - and I ain't sleeping
I drove in a couple days, stayed there a couple days -
it all worked out. Like everyone else, I had a series
of five minute conversations with old friends - each of
whom I could happily have spent the whole time with.
Sneaked into the K-12 show before it was quite open,
and enjoyed that, too. Went to some lectures (John
Hesselberth's was good, and Louis's; I enjoyed the content
if not the presentation of the Bio-ceramics lecture, too).
The demos were, ummmm, well - a bit odd, some of them.
I knew the work of all the presenters, though, and have seen
it for some time off and on. A couple had made major changes,
and that held an interest of it's own.
Aside from all that, I got to laugh a lot, and walk a lot (sorry
about the snow, folks - I enjoyed it, myself, but I've not been
getting much winter until this year. And I had a coat......). A
beautiful carbon-trap shino on the cup I got at the Clayart
exchange, thanks, Ms. Uttal.
Worked in the garden yesterday, potatoes planted, seedlings
started for some other stuff, now back to the studio and glad
