NCECA 2014

NCECA in Milwaukee was amazing, I am energized and inspired by our incredible ceramic community! Seeing old friends and making new ones was truly wonderful. Here are some highlights of the trip and beautiful works of art.

Help Christa Assad

We are rallying for Christa Assad! If you have not heard, Christa broke her back while escaping the burning building that was her home. She lost everything in the fire and due to her broken back, broken nose and lacerated eye lid will not be able to work in the studio for the next three months. You can help by donating any amount and if you donate $25 you will be entered into a raffle where you could win my piece along with many other amazing works. Visit any little bit helps!
