Artist Shay Church enlisted the help of students from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia to complete his life-sized whale sculptures. Whale-shaped wooden forms were covered with wet clay for an installation that coincided with the opening of the 44th Annual Conference on the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. I’m not one of those people who think I’ve seen everything. Still, I was surprised to find whales on South Broad Street in Philadelphia on a March afternoon.
