Students Receive Awards for Ceramic Work

This past spring, ceramic work by ODU art students Haruka Takemoto and Johanna Colijn was included in “Genesis 2008”, an exhibition of regional college student artwork at the Peninsula Fine Art Center. Haruka’s piece “An Imperfect Dream,” a wheel-thrown porcelain bowl with hand painted underglaze imagery was selected for the Genesis 2008 Award in Ceramics. Johanna received the exhibition’s Award in Sculpture for her piece titled, “Still Limber,” a hand-built figurative sculpture made from unglazed white stoneware clay. The exhibition included work by students at other local colleges and universities, including William and Mary, Hampton University and Christopher Newport University. This was the first year that the annual exhibition was expanded to include Old Dominion University and other Norfolk area colleges. The work submitted for the exhibition was completed in Anna Freeman’s Advanced Ceramics course, and both students are continuing their work in clay this semester.
