Ball State's undergraduate specialty in ceramics is designed to provide a broad education in the ceramic arts. The studio environment is one where vessel aesthetics--form and surface design--is taught along with ceramic sculpture. Students learn conceptual development and innovative contemporary processes in addition to traditional hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques. Educational experiences include technical explorations with an introduction to clays, ceramic chemistry, glaze calculations, kiln construction, technology, and firing processes.
