Christopher Karg of Brookfield crafts a piece of pottery Sunday at the Oktoberfestival in Boardman Park. The event is sponsored by the Boardman Rotary Club. This was the 36th annual event and the first with a slight name change from Oktoberfest. Also, hands-on artists were added. Karg, whose love for creating pottery began in the late 1980s during his days at Oil City High School , used a dental pick, a spatula and several other tools to make, shape and design a ceramic bowl as it spun on a wheel.
