Ceramics Club and Studio

ceramic studio students workingThe First College Ceramics Studio is a place where Princeton students can express themselves through the medium of clay. An “open studio” work environment is cultivated in which beginners can work alongside experienced ceramicists on independent projects. During any given open studio session, you can find undergraduates working on functional and sculptural pottery.

Local artist and ceramicist Debbie Reichard provides artistic direction and administrative support for the studio. Questions regarding the studio should be emailed to firstrc@princeton.edu

The studio is equipped with three electric wheels and two kickwheels, tables for handbuilding, a glaze area and kiln. A studio manager is always present to provide instruction.

The ceramic studio is a teaching resource for scholars and was recently featured in a story of collaboration between the Department of Art and Archeology, the Art Museum and First College.

All materials and firings are provided, all you have to do is show up!  The studio is located in the basement of 1938 Hall, on the right at the bottom of the first entryway stairs.
