The AACC Ceramics-Keramos Society held a holiday fundraiser of faculty and student made ceramics on Monday.

The Holiday Ceramics Sale is a yearly fundraiser the Ceramics-Keramos Society holds to raise funds to bring in artists to speak and put on demonstrations, take trips and go to craft fairs.

“Everything is made by AACC students and faculty,” Rebekah Savich, president of the Ceramics-Keramos Society, said. “It’s functional pieces, some more sculptural, but it was all made here on campus.”

The Holiday Ceramics Sale makes between $2,000 and $3,000 every year, according to Ceramics-Keramos Society co-advisor Cassandra Martin.

“We’re self-sufficient, we don’t ask for other funds,” Martin said. “The club has been self-sufficient for a while now.”

The sale also holds a silent auction during the sale. Handpicked student and faculty works are placed on a separate table and customer will place their bid until the sale closes.

The sale also had a table for traditional Japanese Raku pottery.

AACC students have a generally positive view on the event.

“The Raku, I like,” Will Saylor, a sophomore computer science major, said. “the technique is fairly impressive.”

“I think this is really neat to be able to put your work out for auction,” Meghan Ward, a third-year general studies and visual arts major, said. “It gives [students] an opportunity to branch out and see if they can do it.”
