We'll miss you, Chris, at NCECA. It is the first you have missed in a while.
I know!!! I am going to miss all the fun and discussions and dinners and information. I will miss the friends walking around with pockets full of test tiles, or sample miniature pots with new glazes or stories of books underway .... I will definitely be in Kansas City as I can't go two years without my pottery 'fix'.
Seriously folks, if you can get to NCECA ... Go!
Where else can you spend four days with thousands of people who love pottery?
