Instruction in ceramics includes a variety of approaches to clay, including functional, sculptural, and conceptual methods. Students understand the fundamentals of fabrication with solid technical skills including kiln construction and firing, and glaze and clay experimentation.
Students have access to 2000 square feet of studio space that is fully equipped with a glaze studio, clay mixing area, vacuum pug mill, dry materials storage, and enclosed outdoor kiln yard. Studios also include potters wheels, a slab roller, extruders, soda kiln, electric kilns, fast fire wood kiln, and Raku/Sagger kilns. Access to this equipment allows students to experience the breadth of clay methods.
