PIQUA — The Ceramics Department at Edison State Community College will be selling handmade ceramic pieces, glass gifts, and jewelry on Tuesday, Dec. 1, and Thursday, Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the West Hall at the Piqua Campus.
Items for sale have been crafted by students and instructors of Edison State as well as local artists. Proceeds raised from the event will help the Ceramics Department to fund equipment and materials for the program.
“We have been fundraising for the ceramics department for over six years now. Raising over $5,000, we have purchased four potter’s wheels, extruding systems, and a slab roller,” said Stephanie Beiser, adjunct professor of ceramics. “We have also paid for educational workshops for the students to take and purchased many tools and supplies for students to use.
“We have a clay club that donates their time to help with these events and that is a large part of the reason why we’ve been so successful.”
Art classes, including ceramics, at Edison State Community College are made available throughout the year to those interested in working toward a degree as well as those seeking a new hobby.
