Thrown, fired and glazed, SC4 potters will have their works on display at the Potters Market from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12 through Sunday, Nov. 14, in the M-TEC building on campus, according to a press release from Shawn Starkey.

The college’s Visual and Performing Arts Department is sponsoring the eighth annual event.

The market will feature pieces created by students, faculty and guest potters. The event encourages students to understand the process of producing artwork and creating a venue in which to sell or display the work for the public.

Proceeds from the sales will benefit artists and the college, with 15 percent of net proceeds going toward new equipment for the college’s ceramics program.

Pottery is one of the oldest human art forms, dating back at least 20,000 years. Pottery remains a major industry today
