While I was overseas, attending the NCECA conference in Seattle, the Canberra Potters’ Society (CPS) April 2012 Newsletter hit my email and lo and behold…a report on moi!  Wooh! Hooh! very excited as Jane Crick (CPS Members events and teacher) reported on my presentation to members as part of my obligation when I was awarded the arist in residence award.  I really enjoyed sharing my experiences with the members and gaining critical feedback on my work. It was also a bit surreal to read the article in an internet cafe in Victoria on Vancouver Island, BC while snowing fiercely outside and it didn’t seem that long ago I was getting work out of the kiln on...

My first (and only) drawing of the cabin we stayed in at Cobble Hill, Vancouver Island BC.

NCECA Seattle, USA, 28-31 March 2012

Attending my first international ceramic conference. NCECA is a well known acronym in the ceramic world and everyone gets pretty excited about going and a tad disappointed if they can’t.  NCECA stands for National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. I was fortunate enough to attend this year’s conference after much encouragement from my ‘patron’ (the hubby!).  Its funny now, since coming home and reading an article on a local politician who’s mantra is “when things get tough to say loudly ‘I am living the dream’”, this comment confirms that I made the right decision to attend.  NCECA provided an opportunity to network, make new friends, see old friends and...
