dinner party

the bird & the dogwood
three piece place setting
2008

I don't know if you remember but back in January I mentioned I was invited by Santa Fe Clay to participate in the La Mesa show at this years NCECA conference. The exhibit features place settings from over one hundred and fifty nationally known ceramic artists. For those of you not in the know the NCECA conference is the place to be if you are a true clay geek. The conference hosts talks, demonstrations and exhibits on all things ceramic. Bet some of you didn't even know such a thing existed!? All the fancy pants clay folks and the who's who attend the conference. It is the place to be if clay is your thing. I've heard many a story about this event...it's all *dirty*
talk of course. It is shameful to admit but I have never been to one. It seems I am always at the opposite end of the country of where it is being held but one of these days I will go in person. This year it will have to be enough to have this place setting go instead of me.

Thank You Santa Fe Clay!

I loved the most recent post where you show the steps involved in making the pottery. I even showed it to my 7 year old son. WE are so impressed! What a labour of love! I wonder if I might do a little write up on you on my blog and use your photos? Greetings from Norway.

This setting is really beautiful Diana. Also loved the step by step in the last post. So interesting for someone that does not have a clay background (I work with textiles and paper), however some of the design processes/ and steps are similar- I love that. Very generous of you to share this precious information.

That's too cool - I thought about going to this year's NCECA conference, but am going next year for sure.

I'm really looking forward to attending. Love your place setting too!
