For the last month of the semester, a ceramics class is displaying their wares in the library. They are all soup tureens with matching bowls and saucers. Students were inspired to create these objects from readings from
In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan
The faculty member says each student had to create a set of objects that would enhance a meal based on a family recipe or tradition. She wanted the students to consider how eating habits have changed and how this could affect the objects associated with eating.
When the pieces were finished, the students and guests sat down to a dinner of soups and bread served on their masterpieces.
