Welcome GAFA and CAFA

This morning was the kickoff for the International Wood Firing Conference & Workshop at Lake Superior College in Duluth. We are hosting about a dozen students and three faculty from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (GAFA) and about 6 students and one faculty member from Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing. This promises to be a truly great ceramics conference and cultural exchange.

Congratulations to Dorian Beaulieu, Jim Berg, and several others for helping to pull this off. I truly enjoyed my time at GAFA and have also enjoyed two trips to Beijing. How exciting to have them all here in Duluth.
