The Ceramics studios are well equipped and professional. The department has gas kilns and electric kilns of various sizes, from test kiln to large-scale, and offers instruction in their use. All Ceramics majors can schedule access to these kilns for their work. The department has a large and completely stocked raw materials room with a glaze spray booth and a room dedicated to the use of plaster for molds, as well as a jigger wheel, ram press, pug mill, clay mixers and a blunger for slip. Also, there is a large slab roller, an extruder and a specialized wet sander/grinder.
Computers are used extensively. Photoshop and Illustrator are available for image making while other software is devoted to glaze calculation and kiln calibration. Decals are printed on a laser printer. A full-time technician is on hand to keep all of this in excellent running order and available to our students. Undergraduate and graduate studios emphasize private home spaces and communal work areas with ample storage racks and worktables.
