Student working in ceramics studio.


Courses in ceramics center primarily on sculptural form, with some attention given to the techniques related to functional pottery. This area of focus is available for both BA and the BFA students.

You will learn the basics of clay construction, glazing, and firing, but the ultimate aim is to use ceramics media in an expressive way to communicate ideas. Part of the “fire arts” at WSU Pullman, you’ll have access to extensive, well-equipped facilities.
