On February 13th & 14th in the Wisconsin Room of the Markee Pioneer Student Center, the Clay Club held their first Clay Sale of the semester in conjunction with the Horticulture Club. The sales ran from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and there were many visitors to the room including students, faculty, and members of the community. While the Horticulture Club brought a variety of plants from succulents, like Hen & Chicks Plants, Orchids, and African Violets for patrons to buy, we provided a large variety of pieces from Clay Club members ranging from cups, to pots, to sculptures, to abstract pieces. Just about any type of ceramic was represented at the sale. The sale was a great success and we thank the Horticulture Club for hosting the sale with us again and we are looking forward to our end of the year sale in May, which will be held outside of the Art Building.

Panty Pulping calls an end to sexual and domestic violence
October 9-10, 2013
Panty Pulping calls an end to sexual and domestic violence through the transformative process of hand papermaking. Panty Pulping is an interactive workshop which invites everyone to transform their underwear into paper art in solidarity against sexual and domestic violence. The project uses unmentionables to address the unmentionable, inviting the public to snip and pulp undergarments in a statement against violence. In exposing the underwear, we symbolically expose hidden violence and transform it reflecting resiliency and empowerment. The Panty Pulping workshop is ongoing, so students, classes, pedestrians are invited to come for as little time as they can; or as long as they want to stay. The process from start to finish takes about an hour.
