Ceramics from Rhode Island School of Design offers a contemporary, urban context for rigorous investigation and dialogue in support of individual artistic development. 


At Ceramics from Rhode Island School of Design students engage in independent studio work in ceramics, both on campus and off—through field research and participation in conferences in New York, Boston, Europe, Japan and elsewhere. Through active participation in studio critiques and seminars, graduate students investigate the social, historical, philosophical and technical foundations of ceramics, critical theory and contemporary issues. They learn to articulate their ideas through written and verbal communication as well as visual presentation.

  • analyze fields of study in ceramics from different philosophical and historical perspectives
  • perfect clay construction, material experimentation and effects of firing
  • identify qualities in works of art and be able to reconstitute these qualities through making
