Ceramics

The Ceramics Studio at Waubonsee is housed in its own building on the Sugar Grove Campus located on the southeast corner of the Student Center.It has approximately 10,000 square feet of working space. The main studio is well equipped with work tables, numerous potter's wheels (kick and electric), a slab roller, an extruder, and plenty of storage for student work.

There is a separate glaze room with two Alpine Spray Booths and one Laguana Booth. There are three separate kiln rooms, one for electrics, one for gas, and the third is the exterior kiln yard that houses our four wood kilns, which includes our newly constucted Anagama (Fall of 2006), a bourry box train kiln, a cross draft tube kiln, a wood/salt kiln and a small soda kiln. The electric kiln room houses two Skutts, one Shimpo Cone Art Oval, and a L&L Jupiter Series Kiln. The gas kiln room houses two 20 cubic foot Alpine Forced Air Kilns.

The studio is also equipped with a separate clay and glaze mixing facility with excellent ventilation. The clay mixing room houses a Soldner Pro Clay Mixer, a Peter Pugger PM-100 Pug Mill, and a Venco 3.5" Deairing Pugmill for students to mix various claybodies.
