Ceramics/Sculpture Building

Ceramics - Wood Kiln Firing


This large single-story building was specifically designed and constructed for the three-dimensional media, ceramics and sculpture. It houses some offices for faculty members who teach in the studios as well as some studio spaces for senior students.



The ceramics studios accommodate a full spectrum of contemporary methodologies, as well as functional ceramics, sculpture, design and installed works.

Students have access to clay and slip-making equipment, including a de-airing pugmill, two Soldner mixers (200# and 100# capacity), Slip Blunger, a fully stocked glaze lab, and plaster room.

Studio facilities include a slab roller, electric and kick wheels, two spray booths, two gas-fired car kilns, a gas-fired soda kiln, six electric kilns, an area for pexperimental firing, and a recently constructed wood-fired "Train" kiln.



The wide doorways and high ceilings of the sculpture studio accommodate works of considerable scale, but the space may also be subdivided in various ways to suit special projects.

This eclectic studio contains equipment for metalworking including MIG and TIG welders, Plasma cutter, Blast Cabinet, Slip Roller, a small foundry, and various other metal working tools.

The metal area is complemented by a fully equipped carpentry shop, tool crib with a large selection of hand and power tools and a fume room for work with aerosols and resins.
