I have just joined ClayArt, although I enjoyed the archives for some time.
I will be attending my first NCECA conference and I have some questions.
1. The Cup Exchange - all I can find is a cup sale fundraiser. Is the cup
exchange just a Clayart thing or is the fundraiser the "cup exchange"?
2. What is "The Randall Session" and who/what are The Urban Bushwomen?
3. Are ceramics supplies for sale by vendors or just exhibited? In other
words, should I bring lots of $$$?
4. Is the catalog just a written listing of ceramic work on exhibit or does
it contain photos?
5. I use a walker so I need to plan my time and energy. Thank heaven my
upper body is still working, my brain I am not so sure of. What are some of
the lectures, demos etc. that, in your opinion, are things I won't want to
I am a quasi-studio/hobby potter that is still taking classes at a local
community college and Baltimore Clayworks. I just started pottery 3 yrs ago
and have also been bitten hard. There seems to be a fine line between this
hobby and mental illness. Maybe that is why some glazes contain lithium.
I have been impressed with how freely you all seem to share your knowledge.
The archives are a treasure trove of information. Thank you.
