Turning Mud Into Art

The four videos tell three liberal arts students’ stories of throwing clay in pottery class.  Jeffrey Snow is a graphic art major, and describes how throwing a plate on the wheel can be relaxing.  BFA in Art major Kimberly Robinson explains the box she creates on the video is inspired by Japanese folklore.  The last video is of Austin Wallace, who began working with clay in the seventh grade, and has won awards for his creations.
