About the Clay Program
The clay program emphasizes a strong foundation in materials and techniques, broad competency in firing processes and operation of studio equipment, development of personal artistic style and direction, and a thorough exploration of historical and contemporary ceramic traditions.
The clay curriculum includes classes in handbuilding, throwing, surface design, ceramic history, ceramic chemistry, and kilns/firing theory.
"Our graduates become independent studio potters or sculptors doing one-of-a-kind or production work, or teachers at the K-12 or college level, and many go on to operate private or public teaching studios and/or galleries." - Vince Pitelka
