There is a wonderful conference in September, The 2013 Iowa Clay Conference.  It is three days to recharge your batteries, see wonderful clay work, listen to talented clay artists, and participate in a wood firing.  Pete Pinnell is the Keynote Speaker. Israel Davis, who is one of our current exhibitors will be presenting, too.

This conference seems to be like a mini-NCECA, if it wasn’t during ArtPrize and ArtWalk, I would be heading to Iowa City.   There are break-out sessions, mug exchanges, Area exhibits, Vendor Tables, and lots more.
