Summer in Schenectady: Art and Medicine 101


By Ajay Major


This summer, three Leadership in Medicine students — including two Concordiensis editors — enrolled in the Art and Medicine practicum with Prof. Carol Weisse and ceramics instructor Nancy Niefield. Their goal? To explore human form and function through the age-old art of pottery. Five weeks of wheel throwing, sculpting, and kiln firing later, this photo essay exposes their foray into glazing and the Japanese style of open-air raku firing.
