NCECA believes that those creating work offering new/exciting/thoughtful perspectives on the ceramic medium, expanding upon genres of creative production and inquiry are qualified as candidates for its Emerging Artist awards. An Emerging Artist may be at the early stages of receiving recognition for his/her work but is currently underrepresented through exhibitions or publications that might otherwise bring the work to wide attention. The intent of the award is to recognize, cultivate and amplify vital, new voices of creative endeavor in ceramics. The award enables these artists to reach broader national and international audiences and impact discourse in the field.

Congratulations to the 2020 Emerging Artist!

Starting in May, each month we will feature a 2020 Emerging artist on the NCECA blog, Facebook and Instagram. They will do a one week instagram take over. Don’t fret! we will still see their artwork and presentations at NCECA in 2021.

To see their intro videos, go to the @nceca instagram page where we have upload a short compilation!
