The Ceramics and Sculpture facilities are combined in an industrial metal building within a one acre fenced compound. Because of our temperate climate, there is ample opportunity to work outdoors. A roofed kiln area is located adjacent to the studios. There are kilns for high-fire and low-fire processes.
The studio environment and ceramic facility are intended to provide students the opportunity for research and exploration of the medium for artistic expression. No particular style, aesthetic or theoretical approach is stressed over any other. While command of the material, and knowledge of its history and tradition are fundamental, students are encouraged to experience other disciplines and integrate those practices into their ceramic work.
