conceptual and technical skills, the Ceramics Program develops the
students’ awareness of the creative possibilities that the clay
medium provides. The students are introduced to hand building, throwing
on the potter’s wheel and many glaze techniques as well as firing
and glaze development and preparation. Students explore ceramic world
history as well as design principles through slide lectures and demonstrations.
A well-equipped studio features a gas kiln and electric kilns for
low and high temperature firings as well as semi-private studio space
for advanced students. The ceramics education of the BFA major culminates
in a thesis show in the UNO Art Gallery.
