Handcrafted clay sale at UofL benefits students, shoppers
Nov. 15, 2010
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Handcrafted clay items for giving or keeping will be sold Dec. 10-11 at the University of Louisville’s annual ceramics sale.
The items will be available in room 136 of the Studio Arts Building at the intersection of Floyd and Warnock streets, diagonally across from McDonald’s restaurant. The UofL’s ceramics studio will open for the sale on Dec. 10 from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. and on Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The items, crafted by students and faculty members, will cost $5 to $100 and includes bowls, vases, mugs, teapots, platters, casserole dishes and other functional and sculptural objects.
“There will be items this year that were fired in our new wood kiln built last year by students,” Todd Burns, associate professor of fine arts, said. “The wood ash and flame promotes flashing that develops unique colors and textures.”
Sale proceeds help the UofL Hite Art Institute’s Ceramics Art Organization and supports student travel to national art conferences and free public workshops with nationally recognized visiting artists.
On Dec. 10, sale-goers can park without a pass at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium and take the university shuttle to the Studio Arts Building. On Dec. 11, sale-goers can park in the blue lot just south of the building.
