Taking hands-on learning to the next level.

The ceramics department provides BFA majors with a required foundation level experience with clay. Ceramics and sculpture provide 3D options for BA and BS students. Basic techniques in wheel-throwing, hand-building, extruding and mold-making techniques are explored.

  • Advanced Courses

    Advanced classes are non-sequential with each focusing on a specific set of techniques. These provide either the required courses for those concentrating in ceramics, or art elective options for BFA majors concentrating elsewhere. Advanced offerings include wheel-throwing, hand-building, mold-making, alternative processes and atmosphere firing approaches culminating with the portfolio class for BFA majors concentrating in ceramics.
