ACerS publication featuring original haikus by Alfred University professor S.K. Sundaram

Several haikus penned by S.K. Sundaram, Inamori Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Alfred University, are being published in the American Ceramic Society (ACerS) Ceramic Tech Today (CTT) newsletter.

Sundaram’s original haikus, which are glass and ceramic themed, are being featured in the CTT newsletter each Tuesday throughout the month of August.

A couple examples of Sundaram’s work:



Born out of big bang.

Still here forever and can

take a lot of heat!
