The graduate program in Ceramics is designed to promote advanced exploration in three-dimensional form using
clay as the expressive fine arts medium. Housed in an elaborate complex of fully equipped facilities with over
6,200 square feet of floor space, the ceramics studio has excellent graduate work spaces, indoor and outdoor kiln
areas, and clay mixing, glazing and material storage rooms. The unusual number of large kilns and the physical
configuration of the studio allow students the opportunity to work in a size not feasible in a majority of
university ceramic programs. Courses in glaze calculation and kiln design give a high professional tone to
this area. The proximity of the Sculpture-Wood and Sculpture studios to the Ceramics area provides graduate
students with excellent opportunities for combined media work in the pursuit of their personal art forms.
