Get Fired Up

Explore new materials and techniques, and develop your own artistic voice with clay. Your courses explore wheel-throwing, hand-building and mold-making processes; clay and glaze materials; firing processes; history and design. Coursework includes study in functional pottery, non-functional vessels and a wide range of sculptural expressions. You’ll learn command and appropriate choice of technique, ceramic technology and a general knowledge of ceramic art history.

"I chose to attend UW-Green Bay because of my time spent at UWGB art camps. I took the ceramics class at the camp for 3 years in high school. After I graduated, I started assistant teaching at the camp alongside Dean Hoegger. Here I fell in love with UWGB’s impressive ceramics studio, raku firing and being a part of the UWGB community."
