October Newsletter

Hi everyone,

We have two amazing world-class ceramic artists, Lauren Gallaspy and Virgil Ortiz, coming for our October symposium at Houston Baptist University.  It’s a chance to experience NCECA without the expense and travel.  It is absolutely important that all members support our most ambitious program.  Even if you can only come for one day, it’s worth the entrance fee.  Follow the link in the newsletter to learn more about the artists, to see the agenda and to register. It will be a great opportunity to network with other clay artists as well as to learn new techniques and approaches.  I hope to see you there.  

Thank You,

Nell Gottlieb

P.S. If you’d like to be more involved, please contact me at
