Congratulations to Glen Cove High School junior Rayvaun Satterfield, who recently won first place in the Ceramic Sculpture category at the Nassau Community College Annual Arts Fair, held on April 6.

“Rayvaun is a student with an outstanding attitude,” said his ceramics teacher, Vicki Gordon, who spoke about how his original sculpture was accidently destroyed when it fell from a pedestal while on display at NCC. Rayvaun re-titled the piece "The End of the Journey," which is currently in pieces and on display in a case at the NCC gallery with a picture of the project in its original state.

The theme of the gallery is “Journeys: Travel to Outer Spaces, Middle Spaces and Inner Spaces,” which will be running for the next two weeks at NCC.

“Rayvaun is an exceptionally talented student who visualizes the world around him in a way that enables him to create dramatic and challenging 3D ceramic pieces,” added Ms. Gordon.

“I like the challenge of doing things that people think cannot be done,” said Rayvaun. “I use my imagination to establish my goals."
