Rivers, Reflections, Reinventions, NCECA’s 55th annual conference.
Waterways, natural and constructed, are key features of the Cincinnati region. Poet Langston Hughes captured an essential metaphor for the ways in which water courses through time and territory to mirror the experience of our inner lives. “My soul has grown deep like the rivers,” tells us that our lives are forever changing, our life spans occupying but a fraction of the events that occur throughout the natural and crafted world over time. Knowledge and experience change us, our personal courses moved. The Seneca gave us the name Ohio meaning great river. Rivers are essential to ceramic art’s natural and cultural histories. Clays, minerals, stories, ideas, and aspirations of those who create are all transported through rivers’ currents, figurative and literal. Like clay hardened in fire, rivers far outlast us.
