CMU Assistant Professor of Art, Jake Allee, will hold a class in the fall of 2013 that will prepare students who would like to go on the trip.
"To be in these cities, you're going to get the feeling of what it was like to stand there back in the classic era around 900 A.D.," said Allee.

Chaos and synthesis in the ceramics of Jake Allee
Grand Junction ceramicist Jake Allee admits that his personality is a bit scattered, even chaotic at times. But those are the characteristics that have come to define his unique clay works, which have been exhibited in 34 states and seven countries. A solo exhibition of Allee’s recent work will open at 6 p.m. this Friday at the Carbondale Clay Center, 135 Main St. Allee also will conduct a demonstration and workshop titled, “Wheel Thrown and Altered Forms,†from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 10, at the clay center. The cost of the workshop is $30. “He has incredible energy and a strong passion for ceramics. We want to provide him with the opportunity to show his work here to increase awareness of his beautiful work and to increase awareness of his position there and within the ceramic community,†said K Rhynus Cesark, co-director of the clay center.  For the invitational show, Allee will exhibit 40 to 50 vessels created in the last year, mostly in the last four months. No matter when he might be working, Allee considers his works to be a “record of where I’m at in time and an expression of living life as an adventure.†“My work, essentially, is a set of forms and textures and techniques that represent my life in different ways,†Allee said, adding that he rearranges his vessels and forms to create meaning from an endless array of possibilities, sort of like a game of Scrabble. “The only trick to the game is spelling out the concept of utility. Once this is achieved, I use the object for experimentation in the finished surface through firing,†he says in his artist’s statement. Allee says he suffers a bit from attention deficit disorder so crafting clay into the same shapes and forms does not hold his interest. “I kept repeating the forms and repeating them and I actually got a little bit bored with it,†he explained. Now he cuts his clay forms apart, rearranges them, makes new ones, and does it again. “It’s self-perpetuating, so to speak. … It sounds eclectic and very chaotic but really it’s a representation of my life,†Allee said. Husband, artist, teacher, dog-owner, traveler, snowboarder, skateboarder â€" Allee says he enjoys spreading himself into all these different facets of his existence. Together, it all makes up his life. His pots are the same way. Allee has been interested in ceramics since he attended community college, where he thought he was going to be a painter. But on the urging of some friends he tried a clay class and “there was no turning back,†he said. He holds art degrees from Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa, the University of Iowa and the University of North Texas. He has participated in study abroad programs in Italy and Venezuela. Among other highlights of his artistic life, he lists travels through Europe, Central America and elsewhere. Allee currently teaches ceramics at Mesa State College in Grand Junction. Teaching has been a way for him to earn a living but also to help people, he said.
