From the 2014 Arts Festival
Titled Horsehair 1, this porcelain vase (eight inches tall, six inches in diameter) was displayed in the student gallery at the 2014 Arts Festival on April 24–26. It is the work of biology major Jon Hunter ’14, who used tweezers to apply real horsehair (collected by a friend on the University’s equestrian team) moments after removing the vase from a 1,800-degree kiln. Hunter took ceramics classes over two years with Professor Mark Cooper in the Connolly Carriage House studio. He will begin work as a medical research assistant in Boston this summer.
