On Tuesday, April 17, Lindsay Bloch from the Ceramic Technology Lab spent the day with high school students at the Silver River Museum. Along with Silver River Museum Director (and former FLMNH Collections Manager) Scott Mitchell, and Gulf Archaeology Research Institute Director Michelle Sivilich, Lindsay taught current ceramics students about past pottery technology. It was a great opportunity to show them how their work is related to 5,000 years of pottery making in Florida. Check out the gallery from the Ocala Star-Banner for more photos, including the wood-fired kiln in action!
