2020 ICAN Juried Exhibition: Short and Stout

ICAN (International Ceramic Artists Network)


The annual ICAN Juried Exhibition at NCECA is back for its 10th year in 2020. ICAN hosts a juried exhibition of its members’ ceramic artwork to be presented at the annual NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) conference. The event attracts approximately 6,000 ceramic potters, sculptors, collectors, students, teachers, gallery owners, industry leaders, and other prominent leaders and makers in the field. This is an excellent opportunity for ICAN members to show their work in person to who’s who in the field.


This year’s members-only, juried exhibition theme is the teapot! All functional and sculptural teapots can be submitted. Entry fee is $35, and you must register with Submittable to apply. Submittable is free to get an account with.


Juror: Katie Sleyman, acquisitions and content editor of Ceramics Monthly and Pottery Making Illustrated

The ICAN booth is right in the center of the action, and the winning teapots will be on display for all the conference attendees to see. This is the biggest ceramic conference of the year, and you don't want to miss out on the publicity your teapot could bring you.
