The Ceramics program at FSU promotes an interdisciplinary approach to using clay in a studio art practice. Students learn traditional and contemporary approaches to using ceramics within the worlds of craft, contemporary art and design. Through guided technical and innovative explorations, students find their voice to experiment with both non-traditional methods along with the traditional processes of preparing mixing glazes and the variety of firing methods necessary to create innovative artwork.
Facilities & Special Equipment
The undergraduate ceramics program is housed adjacent to sculpture on the bottom floor of the Fine Art Building. Students taking classes in ceramics have access to glaze mixing, plaster mold making, a slab roller, an extruder, electric wheels and digital electric kilns. There is also access to a laser cutter and to other digital processes. Our raku, gas and soda kilns are off campus at the MFA Warehouse but available for community firings of student work. Students who are interested and passionate about ceramics are invited to be involved with the clay club and to participate in community based activities within our program.
