Archaeology and the Ceramic Artist: Baltimore Clayworks

In September, we heard about the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum's teaching collection and their partnership with Baltimore Clayworks, a local nonprofit ceramic art center in Baltimore City.

In the Spring Hopkins' students will work with ceramic artists in an attempt to authentically recreate some of the museum’s most precious items.  Matthew Hyleck, Education Coordinator at Baltimore Clayworks, provides a ceramic artist's perspective about how archaeological item speak to him and reflects on what has—and hasn't—changed in over two thousand years.
