Artists who came to clay from diverse corners of experience through non-traditional avenues.

Voices from Elsewhere, presented by the Homewood Studios Gallery, is an exhibition that features makers who entered the field of ceramics later in life and whose work draws upon their previous careers and life experiences.  These ceramicists came to clay through avenues other than the higher education track.   One maker worked as nurse in Africa and creates installations highlighting the loss of wildlife she experienced while living there.  Another worked for the FDA and applies her science background to her ceramic works.  There is also an architect, a graphic designer, a middle school teacher and more.  NCECA participants, many who also came to clay after earlier careers in other fields, will be inspired by the quality and diversity of work by their colleagues.

Homewood Studios, is located at 2400 Plymouth Avenue, Minneapolis, 55411, an easy ten minute drive from the Convention Center and downtown Minneapolis.  Grab a Lyft or Uber, if you don’t have a car handy.
