Congratulations to Jacy Anderson (Class of 2018) for her ceramics piece titled "Last Supper" which was accepted into the National K-12 Clay Ceramics Exhibition in Portland, Oregon! Jacy's hand built earthenware bread bowl shows a hand painted rendition of da Vinci's Last Supper encircling the piece.

What is K-12 Clay?
The National K-12 Ceramic Exhibition is an annual juried ceramic competition for Kindergarten through Grade 12 (K-12) students in the United States. Designed to showcase the best K12 ceramic work made in the country, the exhibition takes place in a different city each year in conjunction with the annual conference of The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). The NCECA conference is the preeminent ceramic event in the US annually, gathering professionals from universities, colleges, museums, art galleries and the ceramic arts world to a host city to view exhibitions, demonstrations, talks and other ceramic events. For that week, the host city is the world capital of ceramics.
