The call for entry
This is a juried, all-media exhibition of art work created by high school students between ages 15 and 19 residing within 150 miles of St Louis.
The ceramic art pieces
The first three pieces are all food-related creations. Every year I see high school students attracted to highly realistic representations of food items. My personal favorite was the Cola Spill!!
The next three creations are all depicting animals. These are also very realistic pieces. The Time Managament piece does look like an octopus, so that’s the reason I listed it in this group.
I added this Anubis piece with animal shapes, because of this god has a dog-like head.
This piece opens the stretch of human-shaped creations.
This sculpture has a basic humanoid shape with a domed head, like robot.
Just a piece if the human body on this piece.
The last three pieces are more traditional utilitarian pottery vessel shapes.
This one is a teapot!!
This is also a teapot. Just stretched upward a little.
This is the last piece;a nicely built and decorated plate.
This piece was the winner of the William and Elaine Small Award!!
