This lively discussion and slide show highlights the works of these artists and compliments the current exhibition of the ECU Ceramics Guild, in Galley III of the NCPC. The exhibit runs through Oct. 5, 2015, and has many pieces available for purchase. The East Carolina University Ceramics Guild is a student-run organization that brings in visiting artists, organizes shows, fundraisers and trips to conferences, and raises funds for supplies, events, and charitable causes.
