Annual Ceramics Sale Benefits SF State’s Ceramic Guild

Friday, December 09, 2016
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The pottery was created exclusively by SF State’s upper level ceramics students in an all-day “bowl-a-thon,” followed by another all-day “glaze-a-thon,” which were days dedicated to creating most of the pieces available at the sale. Jeannie Field Ichimura, a graduate student focusing on ceramics, was onsite to help facilitate the sale. Ichimura clarified that the ceramic pieces for sale weren’t required student assignments, but were created specifically for the annual sale by students who were willing to participate and use some of their free time to get involved. “It is the only fundraiser that we have in order to raise money for the Ceramics Guild,” Ichimura said. “The money goes to things like scholarships for students to attend conferences such as National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, and Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art every year.”
