More About University of Oklahoma Ceramics
The Ceramics Program at OU provides a comprehensive approach to the development of the skills and techniques necessary for successful work in clay. Through a series of progressively more complex assignments and self directed projects, students learn the medium specific skills necessary for successful completion of projects and for the continued development of the student’s personal artistic and creative expression. Students are encouraged to integrate concepts and experiences from their work in other mediums and disciplines into their explorations in clay. The ceramics facility provides over 5,000 square feet of space, with separate areas for handbuilding, throwing, glazing, glaze mixing, firing and materials storage. The organization of the ceramics studio is modeled on the workshop construct: that is, students are responsible for both their individual work and for group participation.
