Cheech Marin was the Keynote speaker? anybody attend ?=3D20
how was it? other sessions of note? please, feed us some good stuff! thou=
not TOO much good stuff, lest we deepen our remorse at missing the event.=

as an aside, in the far outer orbit of the NCECA galaxy, where the pull=
the mothership is faint yet still detectable, I was honored with an
enjoyable visit from CLAYART and NCECA bud, Esteban Slatino.
I also had a blast, though not a nuclear blast, subbing for local ceramic=
prof so she could refresh and revive at the center of the NCECA galaxy, =
the Florida vortex.=3D20
sooo, NCECA week panned out OK , even out here where wooly mammoth tracks=

are as visible as jeep tracks , where unmanned drones and the omnipresen=
eye in the sky watch wooden catapults hurl bales of marijuana over a parc=
border, and where spring winds dry out tile faster than you can

In 1967 Cheech Marin came to Canada to avoid the draft. He had an =3D
interest in pottery at that time, and got a job working in Alberta as an =
apprentice for a well known Canadian potter named Ed Drahanchuk. In 1968 =
we bought a large Drahanchuk punch bowl set, which came with a couple =3D
dozen small cups. The cups are the kind of thing that an apprentice =3D
would have made, and I've sometimes wondered if we have been using =3D
Cheech Marin pottery all these years. =3D20
