There is also a 1,100 sq. ft. studio for advanced students with a digital projector, wi-fi access, a separate clay making room, and individual studios for graduate students.
The equipment in the studios includes 23 kick and electric potters wheels, a 36" slab roller, a 9"barrel pneumatic extruder, two Soldner clay mixers, a 60 cu. ft. updraft gas kiln, a 40 sq. ft. programmable updraft gas kiln, a 10 sq. ft. updraft gas kiln, six electric kilns, an adjoining outdoor raku area, numerous ware carts, ample storage/shelving, and individual lockers.
The Ceramics studios are located in a campus building shared with Sculpture facilities, so we have easy access to a woodworking and metal forming shop. There is also a 300 sq. ft. student exhibition/critique space and multiple smaller informal display areas.
