Ceramics

Top-Notch Facilities

As a Ceramics major at the premier art and design college in Cleveland, Ohio, you will work in an individual studio space replete with sky lights, floor-to-ceiling windows, large common workspaces, and glazing areas. You will have access to specialized spaces for clay making, glaze making and testing, and plaster working.

State-of-the-Art Kiln

In addition, our Department of Ceramics is one of only a few ceramics departments in the country to own a digitally-controlled, Blaauw gas kiln. A unique kiln, it is fully computerized and capable of any firing cycle, oxidation, or reduction. Our sizeable kiln room also contains three gas kilns, eight electric kilns and one raku kiln. Students may fire work ranging from six inches to five feet in height.

Fabrication Studios

CIA also houses the fabrication studios, a shared space, staffed and supervised by highly qualified technical specialists. Students from all courses of study are encouraged to use this space and do hands-on research with tools and materials. This communal environment gives students optimal means of making for their individual exploration and group projects.
