Transitions: In previous years, NCECA included a call for programming in the (often misunderstood) category titled “New Works.” The NCECA board realized both that name and the description of the category needed to change. We are pleased to announce that this important thread of programming has evolved to reflect its underlying theme & spirit. This is a venue to show not what you happen to be making that is fresh from the kiln, but fresh from your brain. Departures, new beginnings, dramatic shifts in your creative adventure. Have you changed from porcelain vessels to earthenware figures? Or were drawn to wood fire after years of majolica? What prompted your shift? What trials and triumphs, setbacks and challenges have emerged from your studio practice? How does your past works or processes influence or still feed your new portfolio?
