■ Pot­ters and ce­ram­i­cists have a spir­i­tual mys­tique all their own, ap­par­ently grounded in the Mother Earth ma­te­ri­als with which they deal and the method of hands-and-feet man­u­fac­ture they must use. The best work be­ing done in the pot­tery and ce­ram­ics field went on dis­play Sat­ur­day at the Arkansas Arts Cen­ter. Two Arts Cen­ter stu­dents, Miss Vic­to­ria Har­vey and Roger Van­diver, are demon­strat­ing pot-throw­ing and slab or coil con­struc­tion. In ad­di­tion, an elec­tri­fied pot­ter’s wheel is avail­able, along with clay and an apron, for any­body who walks in off the street with an urge to try their hand at it.
