Student research highlighted at annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity. The Impression of Being Human, 
Mollie Stackhouse ’16, has long been fascinated by the cave paintings in the famed “Cave of Hands,” the Cueva de las Manos, which originated more than 10,000 years ago in Santa Cruz, Argentina. The hands were sprayed with paint onto the cave walls in one of the earliest forms of art. For her project, Stackhouse imitated the fossilized look of the cave paintings with imprints on pottery. She began with large coils of clay and built upon them. She brushed her hands across one and added silhouettes of the faces of her mother and her roommates to another. “I was inspired by the first method of drawing, the fossilizing treatment, and by history,” said Stackhouse. Stackhouse, from Wall, N.J., was a double major in English and American studies with a minor in studio art. Her faculty mentor was Kimberly Wimprine, visiting assistant professor of ceramics.
