Student working with Clay



Ceramics embraces a challenging process-based practice that is inclusive of the history and traditions of the material while also encouraging a diverse and open-ended contemporary practice.

As a student you will learn the importance of object making in a studio that embraces community, collaboration, and the idea that the relevance of ceramics to contemporary creative practice continues to evolve and emerge. You will participate in an extensive investigation of the medium, explore a wide spectrum of techniques using both ancient and emerging technology, and investigate ideas through an approach that is broad in scope and encourages cross-disciplinary thinking and creating.
