Clayarters put the icing on the cake for this year's NCECA. I finally got
over my lurking/wallflower syndrome first thing with a wonderful visit with
Joyce Lee and Russell Fouts (I think I got the first chocolate) and others too
numerous to mention.
Putting faces with e-mail names and seeing former workshop presenters was a
real joy.
Electric Kiln Firing was a great presentation. Thanks, John for posting the
information. Thanks to those who do all the extras to make us all fit it. The
slide forum, the sandwiches, the T-shirts, the mug exchange, Mel's greetings
and on and on.
I also met David McBeth and am the delighted owner of one of his beautiful
porcelain pieces. I think they grow in his pocket.
I'm already looking forward to next year and I'm still decompressing from
this one.
