The Concordia University Art Program hosted a ceramics sale from on Friday, April 30 in the top of Janzow.
The ceramics were done by students Chase Berry, Jacob Brandt, Sarah Amburst, and Tiffany Hoovendick. There were also some done by Professor Justin Groth and Professor Don Dynneson.
Three tables of fired ceramics were set up from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The student artists explained that the ceramics were sold for the benefit of the Concordia Art Program. Specifically, they hope to buy a new pottery wheel with the proceeds. Sarah Aburst said that the sale was a rewarding time for her.
“It’s really cool to work hard all semester to make good ceramics and then see people enjoying and buying my work later on,” Amburst said.
The sale was a successful fundraiser and exciting opportunity. They sold cups, bowls, mugs, vases, and other miscellaneous items including small ceramic birds.
Professor Groth said, “I think it went very well. I am proud of what the students produced, and I think the sale went very well.”
