Cuesta College’s ceramics program held its third annual Clay Stomp on Thursday, inviting students, faculty, staff and the public to help mix 4,000 pounds of clay with their feet.
The event, which was expected to draw at least 100 people, creates the material that will be used by the ceramics classes this semester.
“This event is very important to me. My father began the tradition when he started stomping clay in his back yard in 1978,” said ceramics instructor Jarred Pfeiffer. “The stomp is a way to bring students, faculty and community members together to have fun and help out. And hopefully participants will learn more about ceramics and then take a class in the future.”
