Dear Clay Friends:

If you had five minutes to tell a ClayStory, what story would you tell? We want to hear you tell it live, on stage, at NCECA 2019!

For those of you who are planning on attending NCECA 2019 in MInneapolis, ClayStories is back for our 5th installment. We’re inviting you to join hosts Steven Branfman and Gerald Brown along with some outstanding clay people for an evening of storytelling around the theme of clay. The 90 minute event is scheduled for Friday, March 29, 7:30-9pm. A dozen or so potters will be given a maximum of 5 minutes to tell a clay story.

The topic can be anything, so long as it is related to clay. Your age, gender, amount of experience with clay, etc. are irrelevant. It’s all about the story! We would like to have as diverse a lineup of storytellers as we can possibly assemble.

Your story may be funny, it may be sad, it may be poignant, it may be tragic, it may involve the fire department, your mother-in-law, an encounter, a trip and accident or a random event. You get the idea. Seems like any time two or more potters get together, interesting things can and do happen!

The deadline for entries has now past. Stay tuned for the full lineup!

Looking forward to hearing your story!

Thanks, Steven Branfman and Gerald Brown
