A major ceramics conference is drawing thousands of people to the Rhode Island Convention Center. The conference features a variety of ceramic art – from traditional bowls to sculptures and even a pile of high heeled shoes.
It is put on annually by the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. Organizer Jacqueline Hardy said the work comes from across the globe.
“All over the country, international; we come from Australia, China, Japan, Canada of course,” said Hardy.
Nearly 5,000 people are expected to attend a ceramics conference at the Rhode Island Convention Center through Saturday. The event is one of several that have brought large crowds over the winter. Attendance has gone up at the convention center despite the bad weather.
