Ceramics Minor

WVU Ceramics emphasizes development in technical expertise, design and conceptual approaches as a means to expand the students’ aesthetic vocabulary. The goal is to help students gain insight into their professional approach and commitment to ceramics as they actively pursue their self-discovery as artists.
