Freshman IFA Pots

Freshman IFA Pots
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
Twice a year, Mrs. Okula brings Indian pots made by her freshman in her Introduction to Fine Arts class for display in the library. It is a much anticipated treat for us each time she brings them to us. Each one is carefully wrapped in wads of newspaper and safely placed in a cardboard box. We unwrap each one like a Christmas gift, giddy with anticipation. They are coil built and then stone polished. The students then scratch their own design into the surface before the piece is fired in an electric kiln. They are always magnificent, each differing in design and shape.

What a great picture. I think art and libraries go very well together.
