Students pursue interest in pottery
On any given afternoon, as most students head to the plaza to catch their ride home, cross Buffalo Speedway and hop in their cars, or walk to the athletics building, freshman Anne-Charlotte Gillard races across the Great Lawn to CC233, where she creates and stores her pottery collection. Gillard is one of a few students who has recently become engaged in the pottery scene at SJS. The phenomenon, fueled by pottery social media accounts, has emerged in recent years with the addition of a large 3D art studio in 2015 remodelings. Most students find their love of pottery in art teacher Daniel Havel’s 3D art class. Because students only spend a few weeks focusing on pottery in the class, those passionate about the art spend DaVinci and lunch periods and time after school in the studio, perfecting their pottery.
