Ceramics at Finlandia University

Earth, water, fire, air...art from the elements of nature.

Our ceramic majors develop throwing and hand-built methods of working with clay. The direction each student's form takes can evolve to become sculptural, functional, or architectural. Experimentation with form and surface is encouraged from the start so our students understand how, together, these attributes produce an art object. Students can finish their objects in a variety of surface treatments and experiment with numerous firing temperatures.

Our studio is equipped with electric, raku, soda, and gas kilns, electric wheels, extruders, and hand building equipment. There are also separate spaces for the kilns, clay preparation, and glaze mixing.

Students experience creative challenges designed to expand and develop their artistic abilities
