Ceramics

Ceramics at Anderson University is about working intently with clay, transforming materials with fire, and exploring new objects and expressions. Students create utilitarian pottery, dynamic ceramic sculpture, and everything in between. Along the way they learn basic and advanced handbuilding and wheel-throwing techniques, glaze creation, and how to fire kilns. Students leave with the skills and knowledge they need to continue working as successful artists and craftspeople, or prepared for higher education.
