If you are active on social media and follow the PCU social media channels, you might have come across a few posts about the Clay Society! You may be wondering what it is exactly... well, keep reading to learn about all about it and how you can join!
The Clay Society was created in April 2021 by Celina, a ceramics fanatic, and student from the Master's in Fine Art programme at PCU. After the pandemic, she felt that it was time to bring people together and reconnect with each other through art.
Today, the society has 15 active members, 11 of which are PCU students from across all Schools and programmes. They come together once a week at Terra Ceramics studio, very close to Namesti Miru and PCU’s main campus, Polska. The members learn hand-built and pottery wheel techniques and they can keep their pieces. At the end of each month, a member will have produced around 3 pieces.
In addition to the meet-ups, the Clay Society hosted an exhibition and open day event on Friday, the 18th of June. About 30 people joined and enjoyed live music by Master’s Fine Art student Irene Antonez while checking out 28 exhibited ceramic pieces. Guests could even try the pottery wheel for themselves!
