NIDEC-SHIMPO CERAMICS is proud to participate in various conferences and events throughout the country each year. You may have seen us at past NCECA and NAEA events. NIDEC-SHIMPO usually has the most recently manufactured potter’s wheel set up in our booth, with a talented potter on staff providing wheel-throwing demonstrations. Stop by our booth at one of the upcoming trade shows or conferences to participate in the fun by testing one of our new potter’s wheels.
We are happy, having the help of many of our dealers, various schools and ceramic studios, that we are able to continue these demonstrations across the country. Check the calendar/agenda below for our upcoming trade shows and conferences.

NIDEC-SHIMPO will be attending NCECA’s 54th annual conference this year in Richmond, VA!
A region steeped in history and engaged with reinvention, the arts, teaching and learning are at the heart of Richmond, Virginia’s vision for innovation. The primary material of ceramic art, clay, connects our human experience from our local communities to distant places, and times long past. Clay’s receptivity to human touch carries the hands of distant and past makers into the here and now. Ceramic art’s diversity of expression and continuous invention generate affinities that extend the human imagination. NCECA’s 54th annual conference will explore ways that ceramic artists are charting new pathways from the complex meanings of our interwoven histories.
