Show Opening at Mredith College

We went to see the show "DIRECTions: Native Clay" at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC on SUnday because there was a show opening, and it was really fun trip for us. Especially Ken found friends (several similar age children) and he has GREAT time.

Mederidh College has a ceramic program and there is nice and organized clay studio and kilns. The teacher and ceramic artist, Mr. Warner Hyde gave us a quick tour in the school.

"DIRECTions: Native Clay"
September 12 - October 31, 2010

16 artists from across the U.S. present functional and sculptural objects made from hand dug local clay and fired in wood burning kilns. The variety of artistic visions is great, the touch of the hand to a natural resource is a marvel in today’s high tech world.
