Check out The Talon’s lineup for this year’s Ceramics “team of champions”.

Science. Math. Religion. Literature. Language. History. Elective.

These are the classes which most every student takes here at Christian Brothers High School. But when senior year rolls around, the are more options for electives.

Some choose video production, band, newspaper, P.E. or art. For some seniors though, there is one elective that stands out among the rest.

Ceramics.

This marvelous course teaches students the basics of the art of clay. From sculpting figures, to throwing bowls, this class provides students with real hands on experience.

Some students even opt to take ceramics more than once. The Talon set out to find some of the most talented clay workers on the CB campus.

These are their stories.

Ever since he was a child, this amazing artist thrived off turning his thoughts into images. Now as he prepares to graduate CB, Matt leaves behind a legacy as one of the most creative and dedicated students to the art program.

As one of Room 306’s most avid sculptors, this magician spends his time making intricate designs on the pieces he puts together.

When told he had been selected as a member of The Talon’s ceramic superstar team, this senior was stunned.

“It’s such an honor,” he said exuberantly. ” I never even thought I was skilled enough to be on this team, but here I am”

The outgoing senior’s utmost focus and ability to craft extraordinary sculptures cemented his place on this team.

“I’m a thrower,” he told The Talon. ” I just throw every day.”

A lover of breakfast cereal, Austin enjoys creating simple ceramic bowls. He spends most of his time throwing bowls  – a perplexing task to the average student.

“There are just so many great students here at CB,” the Ceramics instructor mentioned,  making sure not to pick favorites.

This talented professor has spent years perfecting his skills in ceramics while also improving the skills of his students. Every day, he enters the room with a smiling face, ready to face whatever challenges may arise in his classroom — whether it be a broken bowl, a discombobulated student, or a lump of dry clay.

This wonderful teacher doesn’t mind getting a little messy with clay during her spare time at CB.

Having taught three weeks of the class last year, Ms. Golden was estatic to find out her position on this year’s team.

“This is probably the highest accomplishment of my adult life,” she remarked. “Besides getting my degree, that is.”

Smiling faces like Ms.Golden’s are not forgotten in the ceramics room. The students love her company and always pay attention to the talented teachers work.
