College art department receives Raku art supplies

Through a generous donation by Big Spring resident Woodie Fowler, the Howard College Art Department received various ceramics art supplies totaling about $350-$400 in molds, greenware and bisqueware. The items will be used for the Raku workshops scheduled for the fall and spring semesters.“Mr. Fowler’s mother had been a ceramic artist and he had thought of us upon seeing our recent ceramic raku grant announcement article in the paper and hoped we could use the items,” said Stacy Slaten, Howard College assistant professor and head of the art department. “I told him that we absolutely could and I met with him and received the supplies Aug. 20.”For more of this story, read Tuesday's edition of the Herald.
