Bluffton University Art Department to Hold Annual Pottery Competition

Written by on November 20, 2019

BLUFFTON, Ohio—The Bluffton University ceramics class is hosting a pottery competition for interested high school students on Saturday, Nov. 23.

The event is for students both advanced and novice and is designed to help build their skill set or introduce them to the clay arts. Bluffton University students will help coach novice students on their own non-competitive clay projects like introducing them to the potter’s wheel and various hand building techniques while more advanced students will engage in a series of “games.”

Events in the pottery games include tallest cylinder, tea set, kiln guardian sculpture, blindfolded throwing, rapid fire bowl challenge, smallest five bowls, longest pulled handle, tallest slab construction and no hands throwing.
