  1. Best Ceramic College?

    Thanks so much for the suggestions! my first choice actually would be to go try to get an aprenticeship in one of the pottery villages in Japan. Unfortunaly, the parents strongly disagre... and they're the ones with the money... but ya, the college in Sac. looks great! I'll definatly look more into it

  3. Best Ceramic College?

    wow, thanks for such amazing feedback! Those are some great points. So, to narrow down my interests. Pottery wise, I'm more into the functional, but I do love to combine a bit of scultural with my pieces. I'm interested in learning about different kinds of kilns and firings too. We fire to cone 10 in a gas kiln at my school, but learning about soda, saggar, wood, salt, raku, pit firings, all that stuff would be aaaaaaamazing(i'm loading my trashcan-pit firing tonight!). location wise.... I live in central california so itd be prety cool if i could find a good school instate. Preferably, the school'd be near the coast because i looove the ocean-surfing and such. but the mountains are good too, i love hiking and snowboarding as well. I'm not much of a partier, so no need to consider that kind of a scene. the best school in my searching that i've found with all of those criterion is Westmont. Its in Santa Barbara and the teacher loves to do functional-slightly scultural work, high fire saggars, and raku... sounds pretty good to me. but ya, any more suggestions? I'll go look up the ones you guys wrote. thanks!
  4. So, what are your guys's thoughts on the best place an aspiring potter can go to study? I'm a junior in highschool and need to start figuring out where im going. I'm fine with either a liberal arts or an all arts school sooooo ya, I'd love to hear what you all think!
