Concentration in Ceramics


The Ceramics concentration is designed for the student who is interested in developing as a ceramic artist.

The introductory course familiarizes students with various aspects of the art making process including hand building and wheel throwing techniques, along with various surface and high fire glazing techniques.

In upper level courses, students continue to develop technical skills in hand building, wheel throwing or in combinations of both of these techniques. Further investigation into content, form, and surface treatment is explored related to the individual student’s developing vocabulary.



By the senior year each student has participated in other ceramic studio related activities such as loading and unloading kilns, firing kilns, glaze study and testing, clay mixing, and general studio maintenance. 

There are a myriad of careers that a graduate of the ceramic program can pursue, some include: studio artist, K-12 art teacher, art professor, ceramic designer, glaze technician, studio manager.
