Need Something To Do Saturday?

Posted By on Sat, Dec 10, 2011 at 6:00 AM

Usually, ceramics are associated with sweet little old ladies who paint useless rabbit figurines and floral-print bowls that their grandchildren will reluctantly inherit some day.

Not so with the Clay and Fire sale at the Boise State Visual Arts Center gallery, happening today. Even the name sounds infinitely more badass than that rose-covered tea pot your grandma painted for you.

This annual sale has been happening each semester for nearly 40 years, and provides the community with the chance to grab original ceramic works. Students, faculty and alumni create hundreds of ceramic pieces—ranging from the sweet and elegant to the bizarre and exotic—and sell them off.

Can't cruise the goods today? Don't fret—you can score ceramic awesomeness until Monday, Dec. 12, with new items available hot from the kiln daily. Admission won't cost you a dime, so why not go back again and again?
