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. 

Conference attendees take in the ceramic exhibits.

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.  

Ceramic displays are more than just mugs and bowls at the conference.

“All over the country, international; we come from Australia, China, Japan, Canada of course,” said Hardy.

Participating Artist Kevin Rohoe said the conference is a great way to pick up new techniques.

“It’s always inspiring, you know, and just to see all the new work everyone’s been pumping out. This is it, right. This is the best showcase to see what’s new and what people have been working on,” said Rohoe.

Organizers say they expect nearly 5,000 people to attend the conference through Saturday.
