From the article, ” ‘I love the research and the intellectual pursuit of what makes my art become a good story,’ says Holly Hanessian, a professor and the area head of ceramics at Florida State University where she leads the 3D Digital Ceramics Project. ‘Why does somebody get engaged with what I’m thinking about? I love challenging myself to make something, by hand, that’s captivating.’ ” “Erica Passage, an art professor at Florida State University, enjoys the realization that ceramic pieces get ‘to live in someone’s home, and that people get to use it. Plus, ceramic pieces last forever.’ “
Both Hanessian and Passage are also participating in the Tallahassee Clay Arts Ceramic Studio Tour. On November 19th from 10am to 5pm, they will be selling their work in their homes. More information is available here.
