Location:

IS 124, 165, and 166

The entirely revamped and expansive 10,000 square foot ceramic facility includes three spacious classrooms for instruction in sculpture, wheel throwing, and figure modeling. Our wet/dry glaze lab has full particle ventilation, and connects by rollup doors to an outdoor enclosed kiln yard.  We have ten gas kilns ranging in size from 10 c/f-50 c/f (including car kiln, raku, and large small soda/salt kilns) as well as eight electric kilns (test, ovals, and front loading). An additional 5,000 square foot outdoor courtyard provides space for a variety of projects, events, and experiments, and a separate mold-making and slipcasting room is equipped with a mold library and Slip-O-Matic casting table. Additional equipment includes a new full color digital Ricoh decal printer with a designated workstation, 450 lb. clay mixer, sandblaster, spray booth, extruders (including pneumatic), and slab roller. 24-hour studio access is available for enrolled students.
