With the ceramics department’s annual Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser just around the corner, three potters gathered in The Art League’s ceramics studio last Friday for a throwdown.
The contestants were Tiffany, Jack, and Blair, who have been churning out hundreds of bowls over the past few weeks along with other ceramics artists. Their challenge: throw as many ice cream bowls as possible in 20 minutes.
The clay Olympics weren’t without drama — including a blown fuse, necessitating a time-out, and injuries including a case of dreaded potter’s back. As for the winner, you’ll just have to watch the video.
All that stress and exertion sounds like the perfect prelude to a refreshing bowl of ice cream.
Tomorrow: See our blogger George’s attempt at making a bowl of his own.
The Art League’s Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser will be the weekend after this one: September 8 & 9, at Market Square in Alexandria. For $15, you can get a handcrafted ice cream bowl, filled with its first of many scoops of ice cream (provided by Artfully Chocolate).
