Teapots reflect artist's cultural heritage
Aug. 3, 2004
KALAMAZOO--Pottery--specifically a selection of teapots--by
artist Eri Vlier is on exhibit in the Upjohn Rotunda of Waldo
Library through Sept. 15.
For the past three years, Vlier has been a full-time cataloger at Waldo Library, where she first began working as a student in 1998. She came to WMU from Japan 10 years ago, attracted to the university by the CELCIS program and a desire to study English. CELCIS stands for Career English Language Center for International Students.
During her studies at WMU, Vlier found a new interest in art and earned a bachelor's degree with a major in art in 2000. She is enrolled again as a student, this time seeking a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in ceramics.
The exhibit is located on the main floor of the library just inside the main entrance and is open to the public during normal library hours.
