The Cleveland Institute of Art's Ceramics program builds on the age-old medium of ceramic art by teaching both the science and the art of its two major traditions: works of sculpture and works of utility. We expose students to the rich history and contemporary potential of ceramics as a vehicle for the expression of ideas. As a Ceramics major, you will study nearly every aspect of ceramic work. Coursework includes handbuilding, pottery wheel throwing, glaze making, glazing techniques, and loading and firing gas and electric kilns. Explore ceramic materials in two and three dimensions through the use of mold work and multiples in sculpture, studio pottery, and ceramic design. Expand your creativity as you develop fabrication techniques including press molding, drain casting, solid casting, casting body formulation, slip preparation and use, glazing, and surfacing.
As part of our material culture and craft environment, the Ceramics department offers an interactive open studio environment that encourages collaboration and communication between students, peers, and instructors. You are expected to share responsibilities for firing, glaze making, and studio upkeep. You also will participate in group reviews and learn of exhibition opportunities for your work.
