Whew! It was great to visit Pittsburgh last week. I was able to see wonderful ceramic art work in a wide range of styles. This conference takes over a city filling it with art displays in every possible commercial and private venue. You can spend 5 days listening to thought provoking lectures; demonstrations by current masters; and you can wander in and out of exhibits daily. It is impossible to see it all.
I have loved Cristina Cordova’s sculptural work for a long time. I sat for 4 hours watching her create a 4 foot figure.
Then watching Alessandro Gallo create his smaller scaled humorous “people creatures”. I felt so grateful for the time I was taking to participate in NCECA 2018.
