HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Pottery and Art Sale at the University of Southern Mississippi was held over the weekend, which featured one-of-a-kind pottery works by students in the university’s Art and Design class.

The pottery is part of the assignment that students are graded on during their semester in the class and the works are generally displayed and sold to the public during their semi-annual pottery sale.
 
The event was hosted by the USM Artist Guild and was held in the 3D Arts Building, located between Century Park North and the Pat Ferlise Ticket Office. It was held over the weekend and occurs at the end of each semester and this was their “Christmas Sale."

The event helps the Artist Guild in purchasing materials for student projects, pay for student registrations at art conferences and secure visiting artists who bring instructive lectures and demonstrations to the campus of USM.
 
Allen Chen, assistant professor of arts, said that items in the sale included works of art in ceramic, wood, metal and other mediums.

“Students make their work all year long and afterward, we have our critique of their works and discuss ways to improve or things that they are doing well," Chen said. "At the end, they are left with lots of art work that they’ve made and the ones that they feel like they are proud of, we let them experiment to see how well it’d sell in the marketplace.”
 
The students whose works sell will receive 80 percent of the money, while 20 percent will go to the Artist Guild. The group is also hoping to expand their pottery class by offering a workshop during the summer which would be open to the public.
