Katherine Denton Art Building & Marie Hull Gallery at Hinds in Raymond

A few weeks ago, I was walking around the Hinds CC Raymond campus and stumbled upon the Katherine Denton Art Building. Since I’ve always enjoyed creating and viewing art (photography is my favorite medium), I decide to go into the building and explore. As I walked through the hall, I noticed the walls were filled with several student sketches. Continuing on my journey in the building, I entered a classroom where students were molding clay into pottery. I watched the students as they took ordinary pieces of clay and transformed them into extraordinary bowls and vases. I was taken aback at the level of precision and care that goes into making pottery. It is certainly more difficult than it looks to produce smooth, professional looking pottery.
