SMFA's Ceramics area focuses on the creative and expressive use of clay through a broad range of approaches, including installation, performance, mixed media, large-scale commission sculpture, papermaking, printmaking, painting and more. Whether your interest is sculptural, painterly or functional, versatile clay brings something special to this intersection of media and processes. SMFA's in-depth ceramic experience will reinforce practical connections and aesthetic perspectives applicable to all artistic pursuits.
