Ceramic Vase by Lacey PrisbreyThe SUU Ceramics Guild Spring Sale is upon us! The sale will be held on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, and Thursday, April 15, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., at the Sharwan Smith Living Room. If you have any questions about this event, please contact Cris at cevanhorne@gmail.com. All COVID-19 protocols should be followed, as this is an in-person event. Masks are required and social distancing is essential.

Members of the SUU Ceramics Guild will sell pottery and sculptural items they created while attending SUU. These sales are an amazing experience for students and give them experience in carrying out the production, pricing, sale, and advertising of their art. While some of the proceeds help support the guild, student artists who are selling their work also receive a portion of the profits.

Bella Cardon, a junior double majoring in ceramics and art education from Kaysville, Utah, shares, “The majority of the funds from this sale will go to the artists themselves, while a smaller portion will be used to fund the guild. My favorite part of ceramics as a student is that I love getting to grow creatively and escape from the usual noise inside my head. There's something so calming and cathartic about throwing clay on the wheel.”

Southern Utah University offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Studio Arts with a Ceramics/Sculpture Emphasis. This is a professional degree focusing on the intensive study of three-dimensional work, as it relates to the ceramic process and multi-media materials. Students develop knowledge and understanding of technical methodologies relating to hand-building and throwing processes, glaze development, various firing methods, mold-making, and slip-casting. They gain a firm foundation of contemporary and historical ceramics and sculpture and have opportunities to combine their ceramic skills with other mediums such as wood, felt, and stone, and each individual determines their own artistic three-dimensional artistic practices.

See what the SUU Ceramics students have been creating and will sell on April 14-15, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Sharwan Smith Living Room.
