Pottery is an ancient craft that still flourishes today. Ceramic expression extends from the purely functional to the purely sculptural, with a tremendous variety of forms and functions.

ULM potters obtain a sound technical foundation in the structural possibilities of hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques, as well as various decorating and firing methods. Once they master technical aspects of functional pottery, students engage in the problem-solving exploration of more creative and individual form, and the aesthetic impact of personal statement.
