New Ceramics Facility Nearly Complete

Last year the Helen Jones Foundation made a significant contribution to the 3D Art Annex project toward the completion of the Ceramics facility.  As a result construction has been ongoing most of this year.  This fall, Von Venhuizen, associate professor of ceramics, conducted an upper level kiln building class.  Graduate students and seniors got hands-on experience designing and building state-of-the-art kilns.  The Ceramics area will be moving into the newly renovated space in the 3D Annex later this fall.
