Crimson Clay

Crimson Clay is a student organization focused on bringing together students with an interest in the “inner workings” of the field of ceramics. Each member works toward the benefit of the group through individual practice with clay materials. Our plan is to display and sell our work at events throughout the school year, including the Druid City Arts Festival and the Kentuck Festival of the Arts. We plan to put twenty-five percent of our individual profits back into the club in order to add to the club’s funding.

Crimson Clay has open studio hours 10-4 pm on Sunday, Bureau of Mines #5

Empty Bowls

Crimson Clay members have made and donated ceramic soup bowls to Empty Bowls projects in Tuscaloosa since 2015. This year, they had a “teach-in” at Grace Presbyterian Church in Tuscaloosa, before the event, so that anyone who wanted to could make clay bowls!

Big Al’s Carnival

Crimson Clay members participated in “Big Al’s Carnival” for Valentine’s Day, sponsored by UA Gymnastics.
