|Studio One features North American wildlife problem and hand crafted ceramics kiln|
Learn what kind of problems the Arctic tundra is facing because of the snow goose population and what goes into finishing a ceramics piece on the next edition of Studio One.
World renowned snow goose researcher Robert Rockwell says these birds have been making some unpopular changes to the Canadian environment. “They are essentially destroying the coastline along the Hudson Bay and many other parts of the Arctic,” says Rockwell. Rockwell has studied snow geese for 41 years and says their population has increased tenfold over the last thirty years. Learn about the destruction these birds have been causing and how it affects our future.
Also on the show, find out why a group of students and volunteers hand-built a traditional, brick kiln for the ceramics department at the UND. A kiln is a large oven that dries and bakes clay into pottery. This hand-crafted kiln uses only wood during the firing process. Learn more about the elaborate and time consuming process of making art from clay on this week’s show.
