MAGIC FLUTE is open; go team! check out the information. Getting to spend a few days in Philly.
I missed NCECA; but I was still able to catch some of the pieces still up from the gallery shows. Gotta say I found the the work of Alex Irvine very interesting. His "Ugly Jugs" are/were being shown at the Snyderman-Works Galleries (www.snyderman-works.com). Rick said they were painted with acrylics, but I think he might be mistaken.
Also got to stop by The Clay Studio. The Small Works collection is a riot! I forget the artist but they created a miniature wood kiln with a tumble stack ready for firing; it has a solar collector... made me laugh a lot.
