     NCECA’s 57th Annual Conference, “Current”
     Cincinnati, Ohio, March 15-18, 2023.

       Wednesday, March 15 – Saturday, March 18, 2023
       Duke Energy Convention Center
       525 Elm St, Cincinnati, OH 45202

   Current day Cincinnati is home to a vibrant creative community of artists, many working with     clay. Collectively and individually, they are getting their hands dirty and shaping new worlds. The region’s first peoples of the Eastern Woodland Indian tribes venerated their ancestors, moving tons of earth over long distances to form massive mounds. In the early 19th century, scores of brickmakers and artisans churned out construction materials from the clay-rich flatlands bordering the mill creek in their very back yards. Still later, ceramic artists like Maria Longworth Storer established Rookwood Pottery when she found that the clays of the Ohio Valley rivaled those used in the world’s finest ceramics.

Current can be a flow of electrons, a force of water, a moment in time. Current invites us to consider how working with clay leads us to engage in worlds of continuity and continual change. The river is an essential and enduring feature of Cincinnati’s history and evolution. Current predates the history of human creation and transports artifacts, stories, ideas through time to future generations. Ceramic artworks embody currents that carry diverse traditions of invention and renewal.
