“I’m there more to, like, make sure they don’t eat the clay. They make whatever they want to make,” Ryan Moffett said about the club he advises.

 Moffett is the advisor for the Pottery Club. Pottery Club is a student run club, which means that the advisor, Moffett, does not control what they do. They are allowed to make whatever they want to, to an extent, but obviously, it has to be school appropriate.

This club is not like ceramics class, however, because the members don’t have deadlines, grades, assignments, and most importantly, tests. Members can expect to make all kinds of plates, bowls, pots, and sculptures.

Also, Moffett is there to give advice on different ways to make pottery. He is there to help the students create.

Even though most know him for teaching the Film Production class, he actually majored in Pottery during college.

It is free to join, if you are registered for ceramics class, and it is recommended that you take it. Ceramics class teaches you everything you need to know to be in Pottery Club, but it is not necessary to be involved.

Ceramics is free to register for, and the things you learn in that class are invaluable for pottery club.

If you are not registered for ceramics class, however, the club costs five dollars.

It is open for anybody to join, and there are no other requirements, other than the five dollars if you are not in ceramics.

“It is never too late to sign up, to just come and make stuff. It is open for any student that signs up,” Moffett said about the club.

Members can expect to make all kinds of plates, bowls, pots, and sculptures in this club. This is more of a set amount of time each week to play with clay.
