Ceramics Major

The ceramics tradition of both sculptural and functional forms is as old as history itself, and the sophistication of civilizations has been judged by the ceramic artifacts attributed to them. It is not without this extensive historical support that students who choose to concentrate in ceramics embark on a rich journey to make their mark in time. Through a rigorous investigation of clay, students become familiar with techniques, forms, and expressions of abstract and conceptual as well as traditional work. With a firm foundation in these processes, students explore handbuilding, molding, throwing, glazing, and firing toward developing their strengths and defining a personal vocabulary and artistic style.
