The purpose of NCECA is to promote and improve the ceramic arts through education, research and creative practice. One of the many ways that NCECA supports its members is by providing opportunities to engage in international programs. Intercultural exchange of ideas and methods is critical to evolution of individual artists who through their immersion and experimentation, absorb and sometimes transform influences of other artists and their cultures. Since launching this initiative, NCECA has participated in programs in Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe. NCECA is committed to the idea that global interface will continue to play an important role in our organization’s efforts to sustain and advance a vibrant ceramic art and education community.

Consideration for NCECA International Residency opportunities is open all NCECA members.

Pocosin Arts School of Fine Craft, located in Columbia, NC is hosting its second annual Drinking Vessel & Earring Show Juried by Tom Bartel and Kathleen Browne.

Artists are responsible for shipping to and from the show.

Functional objects differ from decorative objects through user interaction. With the intent that the object is handled and used, certain aspects of its formal creation are called to attention. Comfort, familiarity, and usability all introduce essential considerations for the functional object. Ware/Wear seeks to gather and celebrate these concerns in the form of cups and earrings, both longstanding objects in human history that have been found in some form in every civilization.

Please submit up to 3 cups, and/or pairs of earrings. Your submission(s) must be fully functional and usable.

Co-founded by Paolo Porelli and Lori-Ann Touchette, the non-profit organization ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program in Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken as an acronym, it spells out our main activities: ceramics, residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts.  We are located in the mid 16th-century Palazzo Delfini in the historical center of Rome, just blocks from the Capitoline Hill on one side and the Pantheon on the other.

We offer artist residencies for ceramic artists, periods of 4, 5, 9 or 10 weeks. For 2016, the residency periods are:

For 2017 the residency periods are (5 weeks unless noted):

The residency fee covers a semi-private equipped studio, shared housing (private room) in the historical center of Rome, and technical assistance in procuring materials, firings, etc., advice on museums, galleries and sites in Rome and beyond. We also offer a residency in the countyside near Bracciano, with private accommodation in a 1-bedroom house with a garden and a private studio. This option is particularly attractive for collaborative projects and/or ceramic artists who work with reduction firing or those who would like tobring their spouse/partner and/or children.

Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond. Artists are encouraged to submit a proposal for a final exhibition to display the work created during the residency period.
