Ceramics: Pottery and Sculpture
Ceramics students at Berry learn to hand-build and to throw so that they can make
almost anything they can imagine out of clay, be it pottery or
sculptural work. They learn to formulate and mix clay and glazes, and
fire gas and electric kilns. The focus is on imagination, technical
mastery, developing artistic maturity and independence. Ceramics students are known to be capable of creating works at the graduate level. Berry students can fire Raku, stoneware,
earthenware and salt, in either oxidation or reduction.
The small class sizes facilitate one-to-one instruction.
