Ancient Artifact Replicas Provide Students with Ceramics Experience, Public a Chance to Watch Pit Firing

 At Mesa Community College, Linda Speranza’s ceramics students have been working with ASU museum studies graduate student Brian Asdell to create reproductions of ancient pieces not usually found in museum collections due to their ordinary and often undecorated design. Visitors attending the Deer Valley Rock Art Center’s sunset tour on July 26 will be able to witness the unveiling of the vessels after the firing is complete. Reservations are required for the tour, and general admission charges apply.
