The faculty in the ceramics area is interested in and encourages the development of each student’s personal point of view. We emphasize conceptual exploration and the acquisition of historical, critical and theoretical knowledge. Additionally, we feel the production of works of art (learning through the experience of making) and technical development are essential ingredients for the successful studio artist. We are interested in students that understand tradition and embrace the making of useful objects as well as students who feel there may be new traditions to develop and new boundaries to expand. Consequently, the range of students work is very broad, from sculpture and installation to utilitarian objects.
