Handmade Art Sale Benefits Ceramics Students, Studio


Looking for a unique piece that can’t be found at retailers such as Target or Ikea?

The Spring Ceramics Sale on Saturday has something to offer all tastes and budgets. The sale features work by faculty and more than 200 current ceramics students. The selection available includes decorative, sculptural and functional pieces of pottery in porcelain, stoneware, raku, majolica and more. Prices range from $5 to $100.

“Some of the advanced students show their work in galleries,” said Mark Poore, ceramics department head, explaining that there are high quality pieces available.

Proceeds are split between the artists and the department, with the department receiving 20 percent. Those funds are used for supplies and equipment, and to bring special speakers to GCC.
The sale is from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday in the Student Center Conference Room 212. Free parking will be available in Lot A off Mountain Street.
