Profits from any sales of their work will be put in an account until there is enough money to purchase a kiln and possibly a pottery wheel and clay materials, Rehfeld said.

The summer projects at Lakeside have combined creative arts with education, since students have learned to work as a team, with each job playing an important role to complete their projects.
