 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.
