Ed Ross, artist, sculptor, professor at USF and father of Eugene in SK, was a visiting artist for lower division students. All grade levels had the opportunity to watch Mr. Ross “throw a pot” on the pottery wheel. He created many pieces in the wheel including a mug, bowl, plate and bird. He demonstrated various techniques as well as adding details in the art objects. The students also learned where clay comes from and that another name for clay is “mother earth”.
