NCECA stand for the National Council on Education of Ceramic Arts. It's the largest ceramic conference in North America. It's a great opportunity to meet artists, teachers, and critics. Everybody who's somebody will be there. It is a great opportunity to talk one-on-one with professors of schools you would be interested in attending, and also a great experience to talk to students about their school from their perspective. If you are looking for great deals on ceramic supplies NCECA is the place to go. Every year brings great sales, and also if you have any questions for distributors or suppliers you can ask and chat with them about it in person. The best part about NCECA is that there are scores of interesting panels, discussions, and lectures all based on contemporary issues with ceramics. Topics in the past have been firing techniques, professional life, critique, and many more.
I am suggesting that we have a deviantMEET sometime at NCECA. A logical time and place would be Wednesday
