The UNC Asheville Ceramic concentration offers a diverse and comprehensive curriculum. The philosophy and intent of program is to provide a broad base of knowledge as it relates to the ceramic arts. Students are exposed to ceramic materials and firing processes (electric, gas, wood, raku, and vapor). This concentration offers and supports both vessel aesthetics along with ceramic sculpture. Traditional techniques of hand-building, wheel-throwing and mold making are taught in addition to conceptual development and innovative contemporary forming processes.
There is one full time faculty and a part time technician/faculty. The studio is equipped with fourteen potter’s wheels and a variety of electric, gas, raku, wood/salt, and Anagama kilns
