ANCIENT NEAR EASTERN POTTERY FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION
The Sandor Teszler Library Gallery features selected works from
the recently acquired collection of ancient Near Eastern pottery. The ancient Near East, a region including the present Middle East, was
home to the oldest civilizations and a crossroads of world culture.
This exhibit highlights the development and advancement of technologies in
the production of pottery, starting from hand-building, to wheel throwing, and then
to the use of molds. This exhibition is made possible by a generous gift from Mr. David Robinson, a 1965 Wofford College graduate.

DISCOMBOBULATED: CERAMICS AND OTHER WORKS BY CAROLYN FORD
As a ceramicist working with the circular form-- where there is no
beginning and no end-- is a portal into my mind, which is most often
discombobulated with no stop or start of ideas. Thus, as a form of catharsis,
throwing on the wheel is meditative. But, creating a more linear form as
sculptural tiles allows me to communicate my thoughts. The physicality of
working with the clay as well as the risk, surprise and flexibility of the
medium complete this process.
